"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!
