The "Baton" is an Elephant

Every year, Walter Thieme (on the lectern on the left) has almost six thousand tons of products picked up by seagoing vessels from producers and brought to customers. So it was a matter of course for him that he wanted to hand over his company to his son Gero (on the right at the lectern) on a ship. The celebration took place on the Stader museum ship MS Greundiek, shown in the background. - Photo: Beatrix Krone, Schattke

He presented his son with the artistically designed image of an elephant. Thieme Senior had come up with something special for the change in the executive chair: He invited more than sixty employees, companions, business friends and family to a trip on the Elbe on the Stade-based museum ship "MS Greundiek" for several hours.

“What would a company be without its qualified employees?” Walter Thieme asked this in his speech on board - and immediately asked all employees to come to the lectern. He is very happy that he has always been able to rely on his team. The departing boss presented his employees with a "team sculpture" that is supposed to remind them of the good spirit in the company every day. - All photos: Beatrix Krone, Schattke - All image texts: mud
