At the turn of the year 2015/2016, Daniel Schleimer – regional manager of the security service provider Securitas in North Rhine-Westphalia – was appointed to the economic senate of the German Association for Small and Medium-Sized Businesses (BVMW, Bundesverband mittelständische Wirtschaft) NRW. The appointment to the state economic senate of the largest voluntary trade association in Germany was made by NRW regional managing director Herbert Schulte.

"The membership strengthens the BVMW economic senate and supports the entrepreneur community in its function as "spearhead" of the general association, which sees itself as a regulatory corrective and promotes better economic frameworks," says Herbert Schulte. "We define ourselves as an entrepreneurial community of solidarity and we jointly aim to strengthen the framework for our social market economy. Our company is characterized by corporate action and social responsibility, both of which are actively promoted by our entrepreneur community."
