Young Leaders and Entrepreneurs in Neumarkt
Neumarkt, Germany, 4 June 2007 – RAIL.ONE today had the privilege of welcoming 11 members of the Federation of Young Leaders and Entrepreneurs to its home office in Neumarkt. The initiator of this visit was Gerd Ortner, owner of an advertising agency in Neumarkt, and a former local chairman of the Young Leaders and Entrepreneurs. Now, after acquisition of RAIL.ONE business by AXA Private Equity, the Young Leaders and Entrepreneurs were interested in learning about the future strategy that RAIL.ONE would follow to position itself successfully on the market. Richard Ziegler, CEO of RAIL.ONE, provided the young visitors with a comprehensive impression of the RAIL.ONE corporate profile, as well as of the activities and products of the company. One topic discussed – a possible point of departure for future collaboration between the Young Leaders and Entrepreneurs and RAIL.ONE – was the increasing internationalization of the company. The need for engineers in Germany and abroad also offers members of the international organization of young business leaders – the Junior Chamber International – interesting professional options. The visit of the young entrepreneurs to Neumarkt was concluded by a tour of the concrete sleeper factory.
The Neumarkt Junior Circle was founded in 1972 and conducts activities under the umbrella association of the Bavarian Federation of Young Leaders and Entrepreneurs. This network of young businesspeople and corporate leaders, consisting of 11,000 members throughout Germany, has set as one of its goals the constructive participation in determining social and economic policy in Germany. Such contribution can actively promote the competitive standing of Germany throughout the world. Members from the Neumarkt region accordingly wish to make their own contribution by means of active networking. For more than 30 years now, they have taken part by way of presentations, tours of companies, and organization of additional social events.
