Obituary for Reinhard Mohn

Posted on: October 6, 2009

Last weekend, Reinhard Mohn died at the age of 88.

His passion as an entrepreneur and ambition to serve our society, makes him a role-model for all of us trying to follow his lead. As a participant of the Bertelsmann Entrepreneur Program I am grateful for the distinct entrepreneurial and co-operative culture at Bertelsmann, a corporate characteristic Mr. Mohn shaped for decades. Or in the words of a fellow program member: “I am pretty confident it is thanks to his dedication as an entrepreneur that has made the Bertelsmann Entrepreneur Program, we are now part of, possible.” As future decision makers, it is now our duty to keep his legacy alive.

Here is the official press release.
