The "Hall of Fame of Family Businesses" was launched in 2009 by the editorial team of the Handelsblatt newspaper and the Family Business Foundation. Personalities of German family businesses who show outstanding performance in their company and are a role model for society are admitted
In addition to successful management, the jury also evaluates the performance of the family if, as the main owner, it has a significant influence on the strategy of the company. Other criteria include the long-term safeguarding and creation of jobs through innovation, outstanding productivity, environmentally friendly business practices, and social and cultural commitment.
The ceremonial induction of the new members of the "Hall of Fame of Family Businesses" took place on March 15 at the Charles Hotel in Munich.
With this award, Natalie Mekelburger joins partners, friends or neighbors such as Bettina and Prof. Dr. Reinhold Würth (Würth Group), Dr. Antje von Dewitz (VAUDE Sport GmbH & Co. KG), Otto Julius and Clemens Maier (Ravensburger AG), Dr. Markus Miele and Dr. Reinhard Zinkann (Miele & Cie. KG) and many others.
We also congratulate Jürgen Heindl (Progroup) and posthumously Christoph Werner (dm-drogeriemärkte), who were also inducted into the Hall of Fame of Family Businesses for their fantastic work and life's work.
