Heike & Frank Arnholdt 40th anniversary

It has been exactly 40 years Frank and Heike Arnholdt joined ARNO and ever since they have been very successful in leading the company. This was reason enough for Tim, Alien and Sophie, the successors of the CEO duo, and the entire workforce to organise a secret anniversary celebration to surprise the couple. Over the past 40 years, Frank and Heike have led the specialist window display company that was founded in Stuttgart in1936, to become a leading international force in retail interiors. Multinationals like Adidas, Citroen, Lexus, Coca Cola and Timberland who are present all over the world, are just a few of the renowned customers of ARNO. The company is a well established and highly experienced supplier to the branded retail industry and has grown to employ well over 250 staff worldwide. This international success which has delivered strong growth has been the result of Frank and Heike’s dedication, strategic thinking and creative flair over four decades. Even the mayor of Wolfschlugen, Matthias Ruckh joined the festivities on June, 29th to deliver his congratulations personally and to join in the celebrations with the Arnholdt family and the ARNO employees. Another highlight was one of the gifts presented to Heike and Frank: a large canvas screen onto which staff had added personal messages, pictures, jokes, stories, e-mails, letters and items that were somehow connected to their mutual past, common experiences and shared memories. A perfect summer day, music, beverages and food helped the festivities last well into the night. The Nürtinger as well as Wendlinger Zeitung also reported on the jubilee.
