“When I began to work with Beissbarth 2 years ago, my most important concern was to create real added value for the company and its employees and to set growth impulses. In global crisis situations like the current one, it is more important than ever that we are aware of our own strengths and use them to overcome the hurdles: With a stable local base for a global market presence. We are on a very good path here, which I can now help steer in the right direction. For me, the step now into the management is also a confirmation that the cooperation on both sides works very welland is now being taken to the next level. This is only possible through great teamwork!"
