Petra Helmers is the new WKN Public Affairs Manager

Sector expert strengthens communication department of the Husum-based project developer

(PresseBox) (Husum, )
As of 1 May 2013, Petra Helmers supports the communication department of WKN AG in Husum. Petra Helmers was formerly employed by the German project developer Ventotec GmbH respectively the GHF-Group for the last twelve years. There she was mainly responsible for PR work, marketing and sales. Apart from her knowledge of the industry, the trained bank business specialist has experience in the areas of financing and investment management.

"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.
