Double Leadership to come
While Kerkhoff and Wiethoff will define the future strategy together, Wiethoff will take over operational leadership and founder and CEO Kerkhoff will focus on the areas of networking and strategic partnerships.
Wiethoff is no stranger to the consulting field: in the last six years, he has successfully led the fortunes of the consulting and auditing company, KPMG AG as Eastern Regional Executive from its Berlin offices.
“Frank Wiethoff fits perfectly into the culture of the Kerkhoff Group, both professionally and personally. He combines professionalism with a modern, integrative management style and is able to inspire people,” say founders Stefanie and Gerd Kerkhoff. They are “convinced that we will continue to write the success story of the Kerkhoff Group together with Frank Wiethoff”. In his 24 years at KPMG's locations in Cologne, New York, Düsseldorf, and Berlin, he has brought considerable creative freedom into his business activities. “Digitalisation is the big topic in purchasing, and it is increasingly becoming a strategic partner for company management. To this end, all-round consultants are needed who understand procurement, processes and IT systems. The Kerkhoff Group is ideally positioned to support the transformation of purchasing departments and companies”, explains Wiethoff.
