Broadly transcribing, how would you pronounce the surname Bornkessel-Schlesewsky in English?

I would guess [ˈbɔɹnkɛsɫ̩ ʃləˈzʉski] if I was talking to most native speakers of English here and/or if I had reason to believe he was actually American. Otherwise, I'd try to pronounce his name like in German. :P
