Steven Kautzky Andersson

CEO, founder, beverage enthusiast and brand manager

Steven Kautzky Andersson first got his idea of developing and producing exclusive and artisanal beverages of the highest quality through inspiration from the place where he lives. The same place where Helena Ström, an unsurpassed woman from the 17th century, once lived. She was one of Sweden’s first female restaurateurs. Steven turned to Catherine Engelbrekt for partnership in this project. Her experience and strong drive for autheticity, sincerety and identity around products made her the perfect match.

Steven Kautzky Andersson bears experience from 20 years as a brand manager and communication strategist. He is passionate about his work, and he is an appreciated lecturer in Brand Management. He has had more than 1 000 assignments for some of Sweden’s most successful SME companies, supporting them with strategies regarding brand and business. Steven Kautzky Andersson has also supported public organizations of up to 10 000 employees on a managerial level with strategies and communication and marketing plans.

At an early age Steven established himself as an internationally acclaimed guitarist, composer and artist. At the age of 17 he lived in Los Angeles where he studied guitar under the guidance of some of the world’s leading and most distinguished teachers. His sensational debut album “Gipsy Power” was nominated for a Grammis and climbed to top ten of the Japanese charts. At 22 he started his first company, signing joint venture agreements with world-leading companies and brands such as Universal, Warner and EMI-Toshiba. These experiences gave him an increased and deeper knowledge of international communication and marketing.
