Stockner Business Intelligence's history is inseparably connected with Gerd Stockner’s personal story. The company's founder and CEO completed his technical training in Graz, and then spent many years working for a leading Austrian company in the paper industry.

For nineteen years, from 1991 to 2010, he held various positions and eventually became the company's Maintenance System Manager with primary responsibility for the Enterprise Maintenance Systems at six business locations in four different countries. In 2007, Gerd Stockner also began to offer his services as a consultant and trainer specialising in Maintenance and Enterprise Asset Management.

His path to independence eventually led to setting up Stockner Business Intelligence in 2013, which quickly became an established and leading provider of services related to IBM MAXIMO and BIRT.
