Change of Chairman BE Health
Founder of and an outspoken advocate for BE Health, Markus Semer left the Chair of our Board of Directors on 30 June 2019, after seven years of unbroken commitment and personal engagement. Markus is and will be undeniably part of our young history and brought to the table his strategic expertise and constructive insight, his readiness to support a project from concept to implementation and his positive reinforcement of the operation team. His contribution to BE Health has been beyond price.
Henk Meyknecht succeeds Markus as Chairman of the Board of Directors of BE Health with effect from 1 July 2019. An experienced senior executive in the hospitality industry, Henk currently serves as Kempinski’s Chief Operating Officer for the Middle East and Africa. His appointment is in line with BE Health’s objective to expand its activities in Africa. Besides the fact that Henk has always been strongly dedicated to employees and their family’s well-being, he brings with him profound leadership and governance skills that will prove invaluable as we continue to move forward as an innovative organisation to make health contagious.
