Charlotte Helzle receives the Baden-Württemberg Business Medal

For outstanding entrepreneurial achievements and in gratitude for special services to the Baden-Württemberg economy, Minister of Economic Affairs Dr. Nicole Hoffmeister-Kraut presented the state's economic medal to twelve personalities and three companies, including our Managing Director Charlotte Helzle, at a ceremony in the New Palace in Stuttgart.

"All of them make an important contribution to the economic success, social cohesion and innovative strength of our state," said the Minister of Economic Affairs in her speech today in recognition of the individuals and companies honored. "It is not only your entrepreneurial success that shows your great commitment. You have also demonstrated voluntary and social commitment beyond your responsibilities in the company", the Minister continued. Successful and at the same time sustainable, ethically responsible entrepreneurship is a trademark of Baden-Württemberg. "You, your commitment and your performance stand for this in a very special way," emphasised Hoffmeister-Kraut. The award also shows the great diversity of industries in the state.

Since 1987, the Business Medal of the State of Baden-Württemberg has been awarded to personalities and companies who have rendered outstanding services to the economy of the state. Special achievements in business organisations, trade unions, employee representatives, employers' organisations and in the education system that serve the state's economy and society can also be honoured in this way.
