Our Chairman of the Supervisory Board, Prof. Rolf Schnellecke, receives the Federal Cross of Merit

On Friday, December 8, 2023, our Chairman of the Supervisory Board Prof. Rolf Schnellecke was presented with the Federal Cross of Merit in the Garden Hall of Wolfsburg Castle. The award recognizes his many years of voluntary work in the foundation sector, including in the Margarete Schnellecke Foundation, the Carl and Marisa Hahn Foundation, the Werker Foundation and the B├╝rgerstiftung.

"His many years of commitment have played a key role in shaping our foundation landscape and promoting social cohesion in our city," said Wolfsburg's Lord Mayor Dennis Weilmann, emphasizing the well-deserved award.

As a founding member of the Margarete Schnellecke Foundation, which is involved in work with senior citizens and young people, Prof. Schnellecke is committed to supporting economically and healthily disadvantaged people. In addition to his voluntary work, he was also honored as an entrepreneur and politician in the city of Wolfsburg.

On being awarded the Federal Cross of Merit, Prof. Schnellecke says: "Even in old age, people are happy about recognition and achievement!" We congratulate Prof. Schnellecke on this award and are delighted that corporate responsibility at Schnellecke is not just an empty phrase, but a lived practice!
