“Most people are like a falling leaf that drifts and turns in the air, flutters, and falls to the ground. But a few others are like stars which move along a fixed orbit: no wind reaches them, they have their own law and path within themselves.”
Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha

Ralf Hering was not only one of the founders of Hering Schuppener – he made the group of companies what it is today, giving it the distinct character and clear value structure which is lived day after day in every part of the group. For many of us he was a good friend and always trusted partner in dialogue. With his unexpected death we are losing a great man. Thanks to his entrepreneurial foresight Hering Schuppener has a broad and strong management team which ensures stability and continuity in his spirit. We are grateful for the time we were allowed to live with Ralf Hering. We will never forget him.
