Today, the members of the SPD Economic Forum (Wirtschaftsforum der SPD e.V.) elected the new board of the association for the next two years. BBH partner Prof. Dr. Ines Zenke remains president of the business association.

Lawyer and BBH partner Prof. Dr. Ines Zenke took office two years ago and has now been re-elected president of the SPD Economic Forum for another term of two years by an overwhelming majority of the association’s members. She had been vice president of the association since 2015, i.e. the year of its foundation. The association currently has over 500 members from all branches of the economy.

BBH stands for a diverse exchange of views with all democratic parties, especially in times when key decisions on the future direction of energy and climate policy must be made.”
