Expat Strategy at IMS Gear

EMBA Best Practises Lecture series

In the last lecture in the Executive MBA “Best Practices“ Lecture series this year, the HFU Business School of Furtwangen University is once again pleased to welcome an outstanding speaker, Benedikt Lenhart, Vice President Human Resources and member of the board of IMS Gear, who will be talking about the Expat Strategy of his organisation. The lecture will be held in English.

The talk will be followed by a buffet allowing plenty of time for further discussion. Please register in advance for the event.

In his talk, Mr Lenhart will first demonstrate and explain the current situation and the framework conditions of a regional organisation with locations abroad which has led to the development of the expat strategy. A discussion will be held with students using an example from the company and his own experience.

After taking a degree in Business and Social Sciences at the University of Augsburg, Benedikt Lenhart started his career in the healthcare sector, before he joined the automotive industry supplier IMS Gear in Donaueschingen in 1998. He is now Vice President HR and a member of the board of directors. Besides his diverse responsibilities, he still also finds time to participate in many committees on a voluntary basis.
