umlaut and ‚Stiftung der Deutschen Wirtschaft e. V.’ foster young talents
During his studies umlaut COO Sebastian Keller received sdw support himself – today he is the new deputy chairman of the board.
He owes the sdw scholarship not only financial but also personal support, which enabled him to benefit from positive opportunities and valuable contacts with interesting people during and after his studies. Now Sebastian Keller, COO of umlaut SE and alumnus of the ‘Studienförderwerk Klaus Murmann’ will be new deputy chairman of the sdw board. “With this step, I would like to contribute to the fact that today's scholarship holders receive an equally good support and I would like to give back a part of the encouragement,” he declares. His predecessor Frauke Plaß (Deutsche Kreditbank AG, Head of Human Relations) takes over the chairmanship of the sdw.
“With Sebastian Keller, for the first time we can welcome an alumnus of our Studienförderwerk to the board – according to the motto 'from the supported to the supporter’. That pleases us very much," says sdw General Secretary Dr. Arndt Schnöring.
Beyond the personal contact, sdw and umlaut share common values such as initiative, entrepreneurial spirit, commitment and social responsibility. Another reason to deepen the partnership.
