Anniversary celebration in Endsee
Since the big anniversary celebration could not take place last year due to the Corona situation, the celebration was held later this year. Members of the «bk Family» came together from all over Europe to laugh, share, eat and celebrate together.*
«All in all, 17.09.2021 was a really special day for me. Because in addition to the THE GROW Summit 2021, it was also the day of the company anniversary of bk Group AG. The bk Group AG is the cornerstone of my entrepreneurial success. But 20 years of bk Group is much more than that. It is the people who make my company what it is. The many employees who have become my second family, the bk Family. It is the values of honesty, openness and directness, appreciation and respect that are firmly anchored in the bk Group and are lived every day. All this is what makes this unique company». Gerold Wolfarth, CEO of the bk Group AG.
For this reason, the honouring of employees who have been with the company for over 10 years took on a special significance in the official part of the evening. Managing Director Marc Arnold also honoured the company founder with an emotional eulogy.
Guests also included the 1st mayor of the Steinsfeld municipality, Margarita Kerschbaum, as well as the founders of the various holdings of bk Group AG, SalsUp GmbH, KD Global Distribution LLC and SCALUP GmbH.
We would like to thank all partners and customers who have accompanied us over the last 20 years and look forward to working with them in the next 20 years.
