DSW’S Executive Team

The Executive Director is in charge of the day-to-day business of the Foundation under its own rules of procedure. DSW is bound by the articles of association, the rules of procedure for the management board, and the guidelines and instructions of the management board.

The Executive Director is responsible to the board and reports on current business, projects, activities and finances. It is supported by two International Directors. Together with the Executive Director, they form the Executive Team that is responsible for the implementation of the strategic orientation as well as the activities of the Foundation in Germany and internationally.
