Hugo Schreiber

Hugo Schreiber along with his brother and father formed the W. Schreiber Music Company in Germany in 1946. In very difficult post war years, Hugo oversaw the expansion of the market and guided the company’s import and export business. He served as president of the company when it was taken over by Tolshan Musical Instruments in 1968 and in the 1980s by Boosey & Hawkes. Even during these changes in ownership, Hugo saw to it that the core values of the company did not change. In the early 2000s the company regained its name and built a new factory in Markneukichen, Germany. For his passion for the industry, Hugo was awarded the 2008 Believe In Music Award by NAMM.
