The year that changed us forever

By Rice Powell, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Management Board of Fresenius Medical Care

1 Cf. FME_CMD2020_Workshop_Home_TP. There they talk more specifically about “over 70,000 employees” and “3,000 training rooms”. But those numbers are for North America only, and it doesn’t make much sense to limit the scope of an article about a global company in a pandemic to one or two countries. Therefore, even if “thousands” and “tens of thousands” are a little vague, I believe the vagueness works to our advantage and it suits the style of this personal account.
