Petra Helmers is the new WKN Public Affairs Manager
Sector expert strengthens communication department of the Husum-based project developer(PresseBox) (Husum, )
"We are delighted to again be able to competently fill the vacancy in the Public Affairs area for which Ulla Meixner was formerly responsible," WKN Board Member Martinus Scherweit comments on the new recruitment. In 2011, after many years in the WKN Group, Ulla Meixner had changed to the ARGE Netz, but continued to support WKN as a consultant in the interim period.
According to Scherweit, the field of Public Affairs is becoming increasingly important. "All companies in the industry are currently facing substantial challenges. Particularly the debate regarding the new regulation of the Renewable Energies Act (German: EEG) is causing considerable uncertainty amongst the market players."
Apart from the German market, Petra Helmers' tasks will include pursuing the development of the regulatory environment of the WKN markets abroad.
