Ralf Hering
* September 18, 1956 — † February 16, 2018

On February 16, 2018, Ralf Hering, founder of the Hering Schuppener company to which he also lent his name, died suddenly of heart failure at the age of only 61. We are deeply shocked and terribly saddened.

Ralf Hering gave the Group its character and set of values. For all of us, his passing is a huge loss. Our thoughts are with Ralf’s family and our condolences go out to his wife and three children.

For all our sadness and grief, he would have wanted us to be there for our clients also during this difficult time and support them with the quality and dependability, which they have come to expect. Thanks to Ralf Hering’s entrepreneurial vision, Hering Schuppener has a strong and broad-based management team that will guarantee stability and continuity.
