Not just a host, but a part of the ARKU family

For 3 years, the Wittman family has been a huge support to ARKU. The family has already hosted 5 interns at their residence in Cincinnati, OH from the surrounding region of the ARKU headquarters in Baden-Baden, Germany. This enabled the interns to be integrated into the everyday life of an American family while working at ARKU’s branch location in Cincinnati. With this opportunity, the young guests from Germany had the unique opportunity to see and experience the history and culture of Cincinnati and Ohio from the perspective of a local family. The interns felt like home, living with the Wittman’s while simultaneously being able to make new friends.

Mr. Jake Wittman recently visited ARKU in Baden-Baden, Germany. During his stay at the headquarters, Jake Wittman was accompanied by Thorston Herbrich and Robin Volz – two former ARKU interns who also lived with the Wittman family previously. The company tour ended with a lunch and the exchange of many memories from the time of previous internships in the US. Jake and his parents are already looking forward to welcoming more ARKU interns who would like to come to the US. 

ARKU would like to extend a big thank you to the Wittman family for their support, generosity and hospitality.
