About

Christian Nicholas Stadil (1971) is the owner of THORNICO, a conglomerate he founded together with his father Thor Stadil in the 1990s. THORNICO consists of more than 120 companies operating within a wide range of sectors: from food to technology, sports and fashion, shipping and packaging, and investments and seed-capital as seen in the Danish version of Dragon's Den/ Shark Tank. He is also a member of the board of directors, advisory board and/or co-founder, as well as he is seed investor in many different companies such as MÄT, Tattoodo, ALLUNITE, Washa, FIRtal Group, Istid, Woomio, Earlabs, IndieFrame, Kreakassen etc.

He is a part of a number of think tanks, Big Future among others, and is deputy chairman of DBU’s (Danish Soccer Association) women’s soccer commission. Furthermore, Christian Stadil is an adjunct professor at Copenhagen Business School, in creative leadership.

He is especially known for his successful work with the sports brand hummel, which he took ownership of in 1999. Hummel has since become a brand renowned for applying its roots in the world of sports to projects in some of the world’s hotspots such as Afghanistan and Sierra Leone with a promise and a why to Change the World through Sport.

Furthermore, he is the creator of the business philosophy ‘CompanyKarma’: his innovation of the traditional ways into CSR, branding and human resource management, where Christian Stadil is applying a hard karma concept as an instrumental part of his company culture: that everything has consequences, and will eventually come back to you. Company Karma is also based on a quadruple win on the basis of the notion ‘of doing good while doing business’.

Christian Stadil has several books behind him. Most recently, ’In the Shower with Picasso’ written together with a professor in creativity, Lene Tanggaard. Together they investigate, how creative minds are working with their creativity, and how they can translate this into the corporate sphere. 

With a veneration for the nerdy and quirky, he is passionate about and driven by the intersections between art, culture, design and the corporate world.

His work is characterized by a continuous emphasis on interdependence, hence he is known to break down silos and to insist on finding the possibilities on the edge of the box. 

In his private life, Christian Stadil is married to Alice Brunsø, father of three, experienced mountain climber, martial artist, literature nerd, and art collector.
