New Group HR Manager at Grainli® GmbH & Co. KG and Heinrich Brüning GmbH

Hamburg, 12.12.2023 – Since 16 October 2023, Jana Lena Groß has been the new Group HR Manager at Grainli® GmbH & Co. KG and Heinrich Brüning GmbH in Hamburg. She is responsible for the HR departments of both companies.

Jana Lena Groß will be part of the management team of both Brüning and Grainli® and will report directly to Andries de Groen, Managing Director of both companies. With her extensive experience as an HR manager and systemic coach and her expertise, Jana will be a valuable asset to the Brüning and Grainli® teams. The companies are convinced that her skills will help to further develop HR strategies and strengthen employee retention. Jana will work part-time, four days a week, splitting her time equally between the two companies.

“With Jana as the newest member of our management team, we are taking a decisive step in our ‘Equally Amazing’ strategy,” says Andries de Groen. “At both Grainli® and Brüning, we are committed to equal opportunities and diversity of ideas. Our team at Grainli® currently consists of 54 per cent women and 46 per cent men, while at Brüning 45 per cent of our employees are female and 55 per cent male. We are also particularly proud of the fact that around 35 per cent of our colleagues at Grainli® have international roots and therefore bring new ideas and perspectives to our company. I am delighted that Jana is part of our management team and I am convinced that she will make an important contribution to our continued success.”

Jana’s responsibilities will include the development and implementation of tools to achieve the company’s goals. She will also be involved in the recruitment of new staff. She will also advise on employee development, performance and retention. HR management, HR strategy and HR budgets are also part of her remit.

As a Hamburg native, Jana has remained loyal to the west of Hamburg. She lives here with her husband and two children (aged 1.5 and 3). When the family is not travelling (preferably to faraway places, but Denmark is a must once a year!), Jana enjoys cooking and keeps fit with Zumba, yoga and skiing.
