Graduate Engineer Oliver Zinn, Managing Shareholder of GSK mbH since 2009
A medium-sized company with a commitment to the community
GSK mbH – Association for the Preservation of Written Cultural Heritage – was founded in June 2009 through the acquisition of the Neschen Archive Centre. The company’s headquarters are in Brauweiler; a second archive centre is located on the premises of the German Federal Archives (GSK - Archive Centre Berlin) in Dahlwitz/Hoppegarten near Berlin.
As a medium-sized company, we take social responsibility seriously. We employ only permanent staff and the balance between work and family as well as the integration of people with serious handicaps is a special concern with our company. As a result, the proportion of employees with severe handicaps is more than 20 percent of the total workforce.
Management is supported by a Supervisory Board. A Scientific Advisory Board supports the work of GSK in all specialist questions.
