Dr. Rainer Dulger: "I am very pleased about my election as Employer President. To be able to fill this office is both a great honour and a special task for me. After all, what makes us an umbrella organisation is our diversity. We are the only umbrella organization in Germany that represents the entire economy - from industry, trade and crafts to services and the chemical industry. This breadth - which also extends to small, medium-sized and large companies - is our strength. I want to continue to unite and strengthen this diversity. That is my goal. That's what I stand for as employer president."

V.in Stuttgart. He has been managing partner of ProMinent GmbH for more than 20 years. The Heidelberg-based company founded by his father has developed into one of the world's leading manufacturers in the field of dosing technology and water disinfection. Today, more than 2,700 employees work at the headquarters in Germany and at another 50 locations worldwide.
