At this year’s Foreign Trade Association of North Rhine-Westphalia annual members’ meeting on 06.09.2021, the generational change was carried out in the sense of a new election of the board. The managing partner of thenex GmbH, Theo-Heinz Nientimp, was no longer available for re-election after ten years in office as chairman.

Henry-J. Nientimp, managing director of thenex GmbH, was elected first deputy chairman. Axel Hebmüller was elected as the new chairman. After his election, he praised the work of Theo-Heinz Nientimp: “In the ten years of his work as chairman, Mr. Nientimp successfully developed the Foreign Trade Association of North Rhine-Westphalia (AHV NRW e.

Henry-J. Nientimp is looking forward to his new role and working with the Foreign Trade Association of North Rhine-Westphalia.
