TOWN HALL MEETING – Andreas Joehle, Group CEO, Paul HARTMANN Group

It took some time for Andreas Joehle (AJ) to work his way around the world and then down the African continent, to the country that proudly plants the HARTMANN footprint in sub-Saharan Africa.  This visit was a year later than planned, but when one looks at the scope of the job he has to do, including the expected 6% minimum growth from the Board, we a forgive the delay.  

 The Town Hall meeting – an opportunity for AJ to give his perspective of the Company as a whole, his thoughts of the South African company, some brief references to the Big Picture and an opportunity to ask both personal and business questions – was attended by just about the entire local staff compliment.  Unfortunately, the EC contingent, the lone FS ranger and our ever present Receptionist, had to keep the company going while we enjoyed AJ’s presentation.  

Some interesting questions were asked of him, and answered without hesitation or reserve. His feedback after the visit was positive and we hope to be able to host our Group CEO again in a year or so.
