Dr. Pantelis Christian Poetis neues Mitglied im basic Aufsichtsrat

München, 26. Juli 2019 – Die basic AG hat Dr. Pantelis Christian Poetis (60) zum neuen Aufsichtsratsmitglied bestellt. Dr. Poetis wird in dem Gremium Nachfolger von Nils El Accad (CEO Organic Foods & Café). Mit Dr. Pantelis Christian Poetis gewinnt basic einen Strategie- und Marketingexperten und Kenner der Lebensmittellogistik – und Retailbranche als Aufsichtsratsmitglied. Der promovierte Jurist arbeitete nach Stationen bei der Bayerischen Vereinsbank, spätere HVB, mehrere Jahre im Beteiligungsmanagement der Quandt-Gruppe, wo er zuletzt als Geschäftsführer verantwortete. Es folgten Stationen im Vorstand der TBWA/Deutschland, bis Poetis im Jahr 2004 die Strategieberatung POWERGROUP gründete, welche er bis heute leitet. Gemeinsam mit Kunden und Kooperationspartnern aus dem Lebensmitteleinzelhandel, der Lebensmitteltransportlogistik un der Automobilindustrie entwickelte die POWERGROUP die Initiative WORLDWIDE RESPONSIBILITY zugunsten von Tafelorganisationen auf drei Kontinenten. Ursächlich hierfür war Dr. Poetis enge Verbindung zu den Gründerinnen der Münchner und der Berliner Tafel, Hannelore Kiethe und Sabine Werth. “Durch meine langjährige Zusammenarbeit mit den Tafeln habe ich den Wert der Lebensmittel noch einmal ganz anders kennen und schätzen gerlernt”, so Dr. Poetis. Für das Engagement wurde die POWERGROUP gleich zweimal mit dem Tafel-Teller ausgezeichnet, der vom Bundesverband Deutsche Tafel gemeinsam mit dem Bundesfamilienministerium verliehen wird. “Es ist mir eine besondere Ehre, dass sich mein Karrierekreis heute gewissenmaßen schließt”, so Dr. Poetis, “Zum einen bin ich dem Lebensmitteleinzelhandel und insbesondere der damit verbundenen Logistik nun bereits viele Jahre geschäftslich verbunden, zum anderen ist mir der Anspruch von basic, einen “enkeltauglichen Lebensstil” zu fördern, eine Herzensangelegenheit – auch da diese Phase als Vater von vier erwachsenen Kindern für mich nun sehr relevant...

Patty’s Child Clinics Pakistan enters the second round

The Patty’s Child Clinics Pakistan (PCCP) team is proud to announce that we were able to start the construction work for the second clinic in Mianwal Ranjha, Mandi Bahauddin District, last week. PCCP offers mothers-to-be comprehensive medical care from the first days of their pregnancies through to delivery, examination and vaccination of the newborn children and all follow-up treatment. Patricia Poetis, initiator of the project, said: “This is wonderful news. In Chillianwala, we were able to give almost 3,500 children a smooth start to life and treated over 10,000 mothers medically. We see every day how important this work is, and are especially grateful to our supporters – the Lions Foundation International, the Lions Foundation Germany, and the great helpers of the Lions Club Chillianwala, who did everything in their power to enable the construction of a new clinic.” The PCCP in Chillianwala is very popular and thanks to the good medical equipment of the hospital, the death rate of mother and child at birth has been reduced to zero. The Managing Director of Siemens Healthcare Pakistan, Khurram Jameel, whom Patricia Poetis met in person during a delegation trip of Bavarian entrepreneurs in Pakistan in October 2018, immediately recognised the importance of the project and assured the support of Siemens Healthcare for this and further clinics. The project is also receiving immense support from politicians. In October 2018, Patricia Poetis and His Excellency Aamir Mehmood Kiani, Federal Minister for National Health Services, Regulation and Coordination, signed a Memorandum of Understanding promising government support for the project. Ashan Mehmood Baba, former Mayor of Chillianwala and now Director of PCCP for all of Pakistan and President of the Lions Club Chillianwala was personally present last week to see the progress at the Mianwal Ranjha construction site. It is thanks to his intensive efforts that the construction could start so promptly. During the visit, Mr. Ahsan Baba met the head of the Basic Health Unit in Mianwal Ranjha, Dr. Arslan, who underlined again the importance of this project and his hopes that, following this initiative’s example, a reliable medical infrastructure will be built in the whole country. We, the PCCP team, would like to take this opportunity to reach out and thank all of our supporters and friends, in particular the Lions Foundations and the Lions Club Chillianwala, as well as Mr. Baba, Dr. Arslan, and especially His Excellency Mr. Kiani and Mr. Jameel. We hope for many more clinics, but especially for many more healthy children and happy...
