Karl-Heinz Holland steps down / Michael Wiener thanks him for his never-failing commitment and his important contributions

Cologne, 16 December 2019. Karl-Heinz Holland, since 2015 Chairman of the Advisory Board at DSD – Duales System Holding GmbH & Co. KG, has been put in charge of the Spanish DIA Group S.A. He will accordingly be stepping down from his function on DSD’s Advisory Board effective 31 December 2019 and will thus no longer be a member of this body. Michael Wiener, CEO of Der Grüne Punkt, congratulates Karl-Heinz Holland on his new remit, and thanks him for his never-failing commitment and his valuable contribution for driving the group forward: “Karl-Heinz Holland’s term of office saw strategic decisions taken that he supported and progressed with his abundant experience and farsightedness.”

As an example, Michael Wiener cites the expansion of research and development, the development and manufacture of the Systalen PRIMUS plastics, for which Der Grüne Punkt has already won awards, and the strengthening of the company’s position as the front-runner for recycled plastics from the dual system for packaging applications. “Together with Karl-Heinz Holland, we have established the group with the Green Dot as a leading vendor for the circular economy,” to quote Michael Wiener. “With my colleagues in the Advisory Board and the management, I thank Karl-Heinz Holland for his work, and wish him every success in his future career.”
