Maik Rosenberg is the new chairman of “Wirtschaft für Südwestfalen e.V.”

Maik Rosenberg, entrepreneur from the Olpe district, is the new chairman of the regional marketing association “Wirtschaft für Südwestfalen”. The general meeting elected the 44-year-old on Thursday (04.07.2019) in Schmallenberg to succeed Dr. Michael Schulte Strathaus. The entrepreneur from Werl did not run again for professional reasons.

The new chairman is the managing director of aquatherm GmbH from Attendorn, the world‘s leading manufacturer of piping systems made of polypropylene for plant engineering and building services. Together with his brothers Dirk and Christof, Maik Rosenberg leads the company with around 600 employees in the second generation. “South Westphalia is a strong industrial region, where mainly family businesses are the driving force,” emphasizes Maik Rosenberg. With its diversified economic structure, attractive jobs in a family environment and a livable nature area, the region offers an interesting package for specialists and executives. “Over the past few years, regional marketing has made a significant contribution to ensuring that these facts are increasingly perceived across national boundaries. With my work at the top level of the association, I want to help ensure that this process is further promoted and further anchored in the business community,” Rosenberg explains his goals as the new chairman.

Rosenberg thanked outgoing Chairman Dr. Michael Schulte Strathaus for his involvement in the past four years. Schulte Strathaus has been very successful in broadening the membership base, which has more than doubled during this time.

“Wirtschaft für Südwestfalen e.V.” is the largest shareholder of “Südwestfalen Agentur GmbH” with a capital share of 37.5 percent. This year, the association contributes more than half a million euros to the financing of regional marketing and has a significant influence on the conceptual content. According to the Chairman Maik Rosenberg will also hold the chair of the regional marketing committee and be represented on the supervisory board of Südwestfalen Agentur GmbH.
