BENEO, a leading manufacturer of functional ingredients, has announced the promotion of Inga Heinemann to Head of Corporate Communication.
In her new role, Heinemann will lead the company’s external and internal communications from BENEO’s headquarters in Mannheim, Germany. She takes over the role from her predecessor, Claudia Meissner, who has recently joined BENEO’s mother company, the Südzucker AG, as Director Corporate Internal Communication.
Having supported the PR function for BENEO GmbH since joining 12 years ago, Heinemann will now be responsible for managing BENEO’s corporate communication programmes along the entire value chain.
Heinemann comments: “Having worked for BENEO for quite some time I believe that I can reflect well on the level of information our employees and partners are looking for and are interested in. In this role, my ambition is to create an environment and organisational set up that allows the communication team within the company to work in a smart and convenient way, enabling us to reach our various stakeholder more effectively.”
Heinemann is set to make an important contribution towards leading BENEO into a sustainably successful future that engages audiences both at home and around the world with its story and vision, while helping to deliver an ambitious overall strategy for the company.
Prior to joining BENEO, Heinemann worked at the international PR firm Edelman in their Frankfurt office in Germany. Heinemann is a graduate of University of Hohenheim in Germany where she earned a diploma in PR, marketing and economics
