Winner of the Entrepreneur Award 38: Hermann Butting

At the end of September, the "Entrepreneur Award for Region 38" was presented in Brunswick, Germany. This year, the coveted award went to Hermann Butting, President and Sole partner of BUTTING.

The competition "Entrepreneur Award for Region 38" honours entrepreneurial success, innovative ideas, exemplary business management, sustainable management and commitment to the region in postcode area 38. The media group BZV Medienhaus, the Braunschweiger Privatbank private banking company and DIE FAMILIENUNTERNEHMER e.V., the association of family-owned businesses, awarded the Entrepreneur Award for Region 38 for the third time. The three initiators have set themselves the task of strengthening entrepreneurship and emphasising social responsibility.

Ralf Meister, Bishop of the Evangelical-Lutheran Church of Hanover emphasized the following aspects in his eulogy: "An entrepreneur who not only confesses his faith, but also speaks and writes about it. A successful entrepreneur with a big heart for his region and a religious heart. He will receive an award this evening for his commitment to and in the region."

In his opinion, Hermann Butting's basic Christian attitude is reflected in the company, in the management of his employees and in his social commitment. Numerous examples prove this: For example, BUTTING's study grants support young people in realising their career plans. The BUTTING Academy has assumed responsibility for the Integration Workshop North as a companion to a value-oriented development path for job seekers.

Herrmann Butting was able to beat three other finalists and expressed his thanks for the great honour. The entrepreneur, representing the workforce, called Managing Director Dirk Meinecke and his wife Heike Butting onto the stage for the award ceremony, because in his opinion: "As a married couple we practice such a vocation together."
