Dr Jennifer Cords

Dr Jennifer Cords, Director Corporate Affairs & Corporate Compliance, is leaving Gebr Heinemann at her own request and with immediate effect to pursue new professional challenges.

In a press release, the German operator said: “The management of the Hamburg-based family business expressly regrets the decision of the accomplished duty free expert.”

In the release, CEO Max Heinemann stated: “In her three years with our company, Jennifer has brought together the areas of Corporate Affairs, Corporate Compliance, Corporate Responsibility and Corporate Communications, anchored them in the company and professionalized them. In doing so, she has built a strong team across all areas. She has thus developed Gebr Heinemann's positioning on sustainability issues in accordance with clearly defined goals and successfully sharpened our political profile both internally and externally. We thank Jennifer for her very successful work for Gebr Heinemann and wish her all the best for her professional future.”

Cords joined Gebr Heinemann in September 2018 and built up the Corporate Affairs department. Her responsibilities included corporate communications, advocacy work, corporate responsibility and compliance.

At the beginning of the year, Cords took over the presidency of the German Travel Retail Association (DTRV) as well as the presidency of the European Travel Retail Association (ETRC) on a temporary basis until the election in June.

Her succession at Gebr Heinemann and in the associations will be settled in the coming weeks, the operator said.
