Announcing our new Chairman

Announcing our new Chairman

We are happy to announce that, as of 18 December 2019, Mr Martin Smura succeeded Mr Henk Meyknecht as Chairman of the Board of Directors of BE Health Association.

As Kempinski Group’s CEO and Chairman of the Management Board, Martin Smura brings with him profound leadership and governance skills and is deeply committed to everything he undertakes. He started a swift career path at 15 years old by entering a chef apprenticeship in Germany. After successful qualifications, he pushed the walls to move up all the ladders of the hospitality industry toward his first general management post at 28 years with Intercontinental Hotels Group. He deepened his competences at the Cornell University of New York and California State University of Hayward (MBA). Martin Smura was until recently Executive Chairman of the Board of Dorint Hotel Group.

We are pleased to have Martin Smura on board. With his extensive personal and professional experience, he is well-positioned to actively support BE Health as we continue to move forward as an innovative organisation to make health contagious.
