The goal is to be able to offer our customers the right solution for them at all times and to be part of the energy transition,” Tannhäuser explains.

That way, we can offer our customers the most innovative products in the liquid fuels market. By bringing Anke Tannhäuser on board, we have succeeded in attracting a proven energy expert. She has detailed knowledge of the markets, trends and customer needs. We – and, most importantly, our customers – will benefit from her know-how. I am really looking forward to working with her and to shaping the energy world of tomorrow together.”
