Who we are

Social Return was founded by André Wall and Cornelia Dimas. Over more than 25 years, André Wall has held a variety of senior positions in the aviation industry and built an extensive network throughout the aerospace sector. Cornelia Dimas contributes as a coach and independent consultant, providing expertise in the areas of human resources development and training.

Together we have established a non-profit GmbH and equipped it with start-up capital. This money forms the basis of Social Return, which should be increased by donations and sponsorship from private individuals and companies.

Our professional lives have led us into the world of aircraft, engines and media. Along the way, we have repeatedly met people and companies who want to give something back. So that others gain from their positive experiences, luck and wealth. These companies and people are now helping us to start the first projects. Of course, the plan is that later many other people and businesses will bring in their ideas and make new projects fly.

Our name has two meanings. Social Return means on the one hand, that individuals can give something back into society: good deeds, donations, knowledge, talent, love and attention that they experienced and benefitted from in their lifetimes.

On the other hand, Social Return also means that companies can give back something. In addition to the profit (financial return) that they all have to produce, companies have an obligation to take on social responsibility. Social Return creates places and projects in which companies can make an active, social contribution.
