In 2011, together with the St. Joseph's Children's Center in Stuttgart, division one initiated this joint event.

Generally, Interim Managers fill in when things become precarious in a company. That makes the job exciting but also imponderable.

"Interim Management is a philosophy of life. Most of these managers no longer want a line career." Interim Management is still a relatively young profession. In the mid-90s, when Willy von Becker, who is 51 years of age today, had his first placement as a controller at a medium-sized manufacturing company, nobody knew what to do with it.
