After 4 years in Houston having made fabulous friends in Texas as well as in the other four states of our jurisdiction it is time for me to say goodbye.
I still remember Houston’s incredible resiliency after Hurricane Harvey struck at the very beginning of my tenure in 2017 with highly effective disaster management of the Texas and Houston authorities – assisted by thousands of volunteers displaying “American Spirit” in its very best sense !
Upon returning to Berlin, I’ll look back to a fascinating time in the Southwest where so many of you helped me fostering German-American relations through projects in the fields of culture, business, etc.! Herzlichen Dank!
Please also extend your support and friendship to my successor Kai Hennig who will arrive late July.
Alles Gute und Auf Wiedersehen!
