What kind of job does a CEO have? For me, the job is to provide long-term orientation and security for our employees. At the same time, I make sure that the company keeps moving and that we break new ground for the benefit of our patients and customers. My personal mission is to make sure DR. KADE continues to be successful in the long term. My plus? ambition. A healthy sporting ambition to make full use of our potential. I live that in my private life as well: movement in nature spurs me on. Being able to pursue my passions without restrictions means quality of life to me.

— FELIX KÖNIG - Chief Executive Officer

No can do, doesn’t exist. Finding solutions where others see problems is what drives me. As CCO, my team and I ensure diversity, creativity and development. We make DR. KADE new and more colourful every day. We bring ideas for new products and solutions to the company and create the best possible framework for them. My plus: passion. My children say I am funny, generous and reliable. That also counts for me in my job. Privately and professionally, I am a creative and persistent trailblazer. By quality of life I mean being self-determined and free.

— UTE WYNANDS - Chief Commercial Officer

I want, I can, I do! This is my plus. As CTOO, I bring experience, creative power and confidence in success. As a team, we want to achieve a sustainable competitive advantage for DR. KADE with our “Quality from Germany”. In doing so, I ensure the necessary clarity with regard to the long-term strategy and short-term goals. Our work in Technical Operations is characterised by high dynamics. We are constantly facing changes and want to continuously improve processes. For me, health and family are the measure of quality of life. And the opportunity to shape your own life.

— Dr. Norbert Marquardt - Chief Technical Operations Officer

Being an “enabler”. Finding new ways and solutions together, developing potentials in a team. That drives me. As CSO, I am responsible at DR. KADE for the scientific view of things. I make sure that in the highly regulated healthcare environment we are constantly recognising our opportunities, for the benefit of all parties involved – patients, customers and companies. My plus? A great deal of experience combined with a great desire to question things again and again and to think in new ways. For me, quality of life means above all health, travel and enjoyment.

— Annett Schubert - Chief Scientific Officer

As CFO, I translate strategy into figures. My team and I form the financial “navigation system” of the company. We ensure the company’s financial capacity to act and drive digitalisation forward. The joy of my job, the fun I have with my colleagues and the success we share are the reasons why I am escorting DR. KADE into the future. My plus? I love structure. But I enjoy spending time with my wife, my children and our friends even more. 

— HUBERTUS KAPPEN - Chief Financial Officer

Full commitment to the common cause: That is my plus! As CPO at DR. KADE, I go the extra mile with passion and exemplify this to my team. Together, we advance our vision of a “home for creators” every day. A special concern for our organisation is the continuous improvement of leadership, which I consider to be particularly effective and significant. My personal quality of life? Quality time with family and friends – and the feeling of always having done my best.
