Executive Team

Responsibility and value-oriented management

Two things go hand in hand for us: passion for our work, and openness in our dealings with one another. We can only achieve ambitious goals if we orient our business activities as a whole in accordance with sustainable standards. This is the foundation of our business approach – in dealings with our employees, customers, and partners.
