On November 25th, 2019, we held our annual advisory board meeting at Henkel’s headquarters in Düsseldorf.

Tim Oliver Brexendorf, Director of the Henkel Center of Consumer Goods (HCCG), welcomed several new board members, participants and guests. Sylvie Nicol, Board Member Human Resources at Henkel, recently joined the advisory board and so did Rik Strubel, Chief Marketing Officer Henkel Beauty Care. On behalf of WHU, Professor Christoph Hienerth, Chair of Entrepreneurship and New Business Development, was introduced as a new member. Caroline Klaas, Manager CFO Office, and Dr. Timur Erim, Head of Board Office HR, who coordinate the activities with WHU, attended the meeting as well as our guest Lea Vajnorsky, Head of Platform Development Henkel X.

We presented and discussed the manifold joint activities in the fields of controlling/finance, marketing, purchasing, human resources and entrepreneurship. The focus of our discussions was on future projects in research and teaching as well as on new event formats. We are looking forward to continuing the fruitful collaboration with Henkel on all levels.
