WHU MBA Group welcomed Henkel Global Purchasing & Supply Chain Leadership Team

Online guest session “WHU CPO Class Henkel”

On Monday, July 19, 2021, WHU’s Full-Time MBA class of 2022 had the opportunity to welcome Henkel’s Global Purchasing & Supply Chain Leadership Team as part of their Strategic Sourcing course with Professor Kaufmann and his team. With the online event, Henkel and WHU innovated on the successfully established format of One Day@Henkel by having an online workshop with contributions from the hub in Singapore, from the headquarter in Germany and the Global Supply Chain organization in The Netherlands.

In three highly interactive sessions, the experts shared practical examples, current challenges and general insights from their work experience at Henkel. Thomas Holenia shared his personal leadership journey at Henkel. The participants then enjoyed the opportunity to gain detailed insights into supplier innovations for adhesives from Shalin Aggarwal and into sustainability innovations in Henkel’s Laundry and HomeCare from Astrid Bosten and Sebastian Schauten.

We thank Henkel’s Global Purchasing & Supply Chain Leadership Team for the inspiring presentations and are looking forward to welcoming them again next year in WHU’s MBA program!
