Dear friends and colleagues,
In a life time there are always periods that have a start and also an end.
More than 13 years I have now been in different leading positions in the ETC and I was the chairman for pretty much more than 7 years. During that long period, I can say in all humbleness that it was me as a main motor, who brought the ETC to its size, quality, awareness and reputation that it has now. I invested a lot of time, energy and heart blood into it… ETC was my baby.
Now, with a heavy heart and due to different serious health problems, it is time for me to say good-bye and I herewith announce my resignation as the ETC chairman by the end of 2021. In same time also my wife Helen will leave the team as the head of office.
I have been thinking about this decision for quite a while and I can imagine that this comes surprisingly and hard to digest for you all. But don’t worry, the ETC is stronger than ever and in good hands with a professional ETC management team. Details about its future will be published later on.
Helen and I are grateful and thankful for all we could learn and implement in that time… and we enjoyed every minute with all of you in the community!
All the best to everybody, as well as to ETC future!
