Advario is a leading global player in the energy storage industry. Sustainability is at the heart of all its activities and aligns with shareholder objectives. The company has ambitious growth objectives, and the Senior Strategy Manager works on strategic projects and assists the CEO and Management Team. 

About Advario

Advario is a global player in the energy storage industry with an ambitious growth strategy. The company originated from Oiltanking GmbH to play a critical role in energy transition by embedding environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations, and sustainability across its entire operation. Since 2022, with ever-increasing global demand for energy, Advario’s vision is to make sure that energy will be available as well as decarbonized.

Advario has a clear strategy to protect the environment, reduce waste, and make a positive contribution to society. They efficiently use energy and raw materials, avoid environmental pollution, promote awareness to their employees, and drive impact throughout the value chain. Their three strategic pillars are to be: Net Zero by 2040; earn sustainable revenues from new non-carbon products and renewable fuels; and improve communities through CSR programs and employee volunteering. Their goal is to double its business size by 2030 while maintaining their core values.

Advario is headquartered in Rotterdam in The Netherlands and operates thirteen terminals in Europe, China, Singapore, Middle East, and the US. They use a successful collaborative approach with industry partners to find storage and logistics solutions. With their fifty year history as a family-owned business, Advario employs 1,200 experts worldwide.

“ESG is at the heart of all our activities and aligns with our shareholder objectives. Advario is a portfolio company of privately-owned Marquard & Bahls, whose vision it is to be a leading ethical investor in the energy sector.” – Bas Verkooijen, CEO of Advario 

Vacancy: Senior Strategy Manager

Advario is also expanding its Strategy, Portfolio and Sustainability team to achieve its ambitious growth objectives through market consolidation and strategic partnerships. The Senior Strategy Manager works on the strategic areas of potential M&A deals with M&A Managers, and leads and delivers end-to-end core strategy projects, such as a greenfield project in new energy. For example, storing hydrogen is very different and a high-CAPEX business compared to fossil fuel storage, and requires complex strategic analysis with its implications for Advario’s position and value chain.

The Senior Strategy Manager will collaborate with global terminal teams to successfully implement local strategies and adjust them as needed. Local clusters maximize their asset value through existing business and brownfield opportunities, such as developing an expansion business plan for available land in the terminals’ regions.

This role will be autonomous and interact with stakeholders at all levels using an adaptive communication style. Overall, with the Strategy, Portfolio and Sustainability team of eight FTEs, the Senior Strategy Manager will hit the ground running, and report directly to the team’s Senior Vice President.

In addition, the Senior Strategy Manager works closely with the CEO/management team and Supervisory Board. They will prepare for and host meetings for the Supervisory Board on behalf of the CEO. They’ll need a structured approach to clearly present the message, both verbally and using their Powerpoint presentations.

“We work on greenfield and M&A growth projects, and brownfield plans for existing businesses. These are very exciting times, and the market just keeps moving. We have to be flexible — sometimes we put one project on hold to jump on another opportunity or work on projects in parallel.” –Eduardo Vianna, Senior Strategy Manager of Advario 

This is an excellent opportunity for a strategy manager with an autonomous and hands-on attitude to join a global energy storage and logistics company and head its growth into new and more sustainable operations. This role is based in its Rotterdam headquarters in The Netherlands, with flexible working hours and the ability to work in office or remotely.

This role offers a variety of growth opportunities, and can further develop into the Business Development or M&A teams, or into a role at one of the terminals or newly acquired companies.
