Dear Sir or Madam,

This summer, the only thing lounging around at e&Co. was the persistently humid heat, despite which we were working hard to get our growth motors running at full speed. Our goal is clear and simple: we want to keep expanding and keep diversifying the activities of e&Co. AG.

ENABLING VALUE – ENABING GROWTH: In recent months, we have taken several strategic decisions which lay the foundations for our future expansion. The most important piece of news this summer is without a doubt the appointment of our new Partner Manfred Siegl. He and his team have a defined mission to strengthen e&Co.’s regional footprint in southern Germany and bring a new portfolio of services on stream in IT, Retail/E-commerce, and Power & Utilities. Manfred, welcome to the team!

We also have good news from our future-orientated investment and volunteering initiatives. Our subsidiary in South Korea is posting strong development with a range of exciting commissions and venture activities in Asia. Furthermore, we have been able to place two of our colleagues as mentors in the proven Berlin accelerator startupbootcamp; this offers us direct access to the most exciting new businesses in the start-up scene and allows us to act as a value-creating interface between entrepreneurs and our clients in various sectors of industry.

Last, but by no means least, our new and generously proportioned office space in Wolfsburg underlines our strategic commitment to our clients and (new) members of staff based there: we are now literally offering even more room for fresh ideas and exciting innovation.

Following this growth initiative, we are delighted to be able to support you as an even stronger strategic partner, working with you to make the world sustainable and innovative – for today and tomorrow

Best regards,

Dr. Engelbert Wimmer & Hanns Peter Becker
