A warm welcome to Dr. Klaus Mittelbach as a new member to the AAA Advisors network

Welcome, Dr. Klaus Mittelbach!

Our network of advisors is being strengthened by one of the most experienced trade association managers: we are very pleased to see Dr. Klaus Mittelbach, the long-standing Chairman of the Management Board of the ZVEI (the German Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers' Association) joining our community.

He has served as Chairman of the Management Board of the ZVEI for over 12 years, representing the interests of the electrical and digital industry, a sector which, with over 900,000 employees and a turnover of around EUR 250 billion, ranks second in Germany after mechanical engineering. The global networking and value creation of the industry and its strength in research and innovation (after all, around one in ten euros of turnover goes towards R&D and investment) underlines its importance for Germany as a business location.

In his work for the industry association, Dr. Mittelbach was thus able to make a decisive contribution to identifying new topics and trends at an early stage and to preparing the industry and politicians for the necessary new structures and processes, both nationally and internationally.

The necessarily broad view of industry development, technical evolution and political framework conditions that he has thus gained is the essence that Dr. Mittelbach brings to our advisory community in his role as Advisor - gladly in a team with the other Advisors and always for the benefit of our clients.

Klaus, a warm welcome to our team!
