With the start of the Summer, we’re celebrating an evening @ CEO Insights. CEO Insights Members and other guest c-levels are gathering for an evening of food, drink, and networking at CI member company Miele. Miele is a famous whitegoods and electronics manufacturer based in Gütersloh, Germany. Miele offers their appliances about 100 countries around the world. Miele makes appliances including laundry appliances; vacuum cleaners; dishwashers; cooking appliances; and much more. It was recognized in 2015 being the best corporate brand in Germany that year. In 2018, Miele participated in the highly reputable ‘Great Place To Work’ benchmark project, and won first place.
The evening will begin with a welcome from CI chair Spencer Wolfe. CEOs are always wanting to learn about each other’s experiences. Miele Japan, Managing Director, Hideki Matsubara will introduce the Miele brand and its business. The rest of the evening will give CI members and their guests a chance to catch up at the start of the Summer. We are also planning for a special surprise guest. More to come on that.
