At HEARTLAND, we have a profound belief that people make the difference. Therefore, we look for people and leaders with passion, commitment and authenticity.

We work to establish a winning, yet humble, mentality among our people and partners to create enduring value for all parties.

We believe that a vision and a proper business plan are both important, but to us the right mindset and the right values will always be paramount.

HEARTLAND is a holding company representing the interests of the Holch Povlsen family and their family business BESTSELLER.

Our spirit, actions and outlook are founded on the family’s values. That means we have the greatest respect for the people we work with, the environment we live in and the society we are part of.
