On Friday, March 16, 2018, WHU bestowed the distinction of status as "Senior Fellow" upon a long-time friend of the Business School. Jan Caspar Hoffmann, Managing Director of Moelis & Company in Frankfurt and Head of M&A German-speaking Europe, has supported WHU for years.
For his commitment to WHU as a guest lecturer in the Master Programs, the MBA Programs and WHU’s Executive Education Programs, his activities as a speaker at various conferences and his ongoing support for the Business School, he was now appointed as “Senior Fellow”.
The "WHU Senior Fellow" distinction was presented for the first time in 2015, when Dr. Hartmut Leser, CEO of Aberdeen Deutschland, and Stefan Jentzsch, a Partner at Perella Weinberg Partners were appointed as “Senior Fellows”. The award was created to provide special recognition to outstanding figures in business, politics and society who have dedicated themselves to a particular degree to instruction at WHU. The title is initially awarded for three years but can be renewed for another three years at a time.
