The members of our Europa AG are our employees, the Executive Board and the Supervisory Board. In addition, an external strategic partner is considered a member of our company. Each member has the opportunity to hold shares in the company. If a member leaves, the member sells their shares to another member or to the company. This ensures that the entire voting share capital always and exclusively remains in the hands of the members.
All votes belong to the members of the society.
Each member has at least one vote.
Every member works for the company.
Only members of the Society are entitled to vote.
We are convinced that employees want to do excellent and creative work and will do so if they have the right environment.“
After all, as an employee I not only know where the company is heading, but I can actively influence it. Unfortunately, I don't have such an opportunity with publicly traded shares. [...]“
For me personally, the possibility to buy employee shares was a decisive reason to work at Smart Commerce. In my eyes, our greatest value is all our employees, whose commitment determines the success or failure of our company. That's why I think it's right that through our employee shares everyone can additionally participate in our overall development and benefit from a rising share price and a dividend in good years.“
Transparency is important. If you have an insight into the inner workings of the company, then the participation really makes sense.“
The core elements of successful employee participation are employee share ownership and profit-sharing. Smart Commerce employees have both. Readers can find out how this affects their work and the company in our white paper.
Our company is shaped by four bodies: The Executive Board, the Supervisory Board, the Partners' Advisory Board and the Annual General Meeting. The annual general meeting of shareholders provides information and makes fundamental corporate decisions. The shareholders, the Supervisory Board and the Executive Board share the same goals as members. This ensures the sustainable development of the company.
The Executive Board, in the persons of CEO Dr. Ludger Vogt, COO Frank Schneider and COO Ingo Körber, is the management body of the Executive Board and represents the company in legal and business dealings. Executive Board members are appointed by the Supervisory Board. Their term of office is 5 years at the most; reappointment for further periods is possible as often as desired.
The Supervisory Board is chaired by Claudia Rothe, Managing Director for Finance, Controlling, Legal and Insurance and Information Technology of the fischer group of companies.
The Partner Advisory Board is not a statutory body but a voluntary body of the company. It will pool the interests of European partners. The Partner Advisory Board will only be initiated in a future development phase.
The Annual General Meeting decides, among other things, on the discharge of the Executive Board and the Supervisory Board, resolves on important issues such as amendments to the Articles of Association, capital increases or inter-company agreements and submits proposals for the appropriation of profits.
