Significant sales growth through individual and holistic marketing advice & support in sales implementation.
As a long-time marketing manager and director, I know how to quickly find out the focus areas and which goals can be realistically achieved and when. Accordingly, I prioritize the success factors and let myself be measured by goals and sales growth. I am also happy to make square processes for you round and implement new ones successfully.

What is the plenary?
Roughly speaking, the plenum represents the Hamburg economy and determines the guidelines for the work of the Chamber of Commerce. It also elects the President and Vice-Presidents of our Chamber of Commerce from among its ranks, who in turn appoint the Chief Executive Officer.
At the beginning of 2020, the Hamburg companies will elect the members of the plenum in nine electoral groups, which represent all sectors and company sizes of Hamburg's economy. The number of seats in an electoral group in the plenary session depends on the economic importance of the respective branch. This means that all branches of the economy are adequately represented. In each electoral group, seats are also reserved for small, medium-sized and large companies. The plenary is thus the reflection of the Hamburg economy.
How will the plenary 2020-2024 be composed exactly?
58 members of the plenary will be directly elected by the members of the Chamber at the beginning of 2020, from January 20. Up to nine plenary members can be indirectly elected by the directly elected plenary members. The prerequisite for elections is always that the plenum determines a need to refine the mirror image of the plenum.
Christine Witthöft is running because it is important to her that the Chamber of Commerce and our Hamburg metropolitan region have a strong economic focus. For medium-sized companies in particular, digitization and realignment will be the most important economic drivers in the coming years.
"Thank you very much for your support and vote in the Chamber of Commerce plenary election 2020!"
