 Dear Wikimedia friends,

 On behalf of our board, I am delighted to announce that Christian Rickerts
 will be the new Executive Director of Wikimedia Deutschland. The board
 followed the transition team’s unanimous recommendation and hired Christian
 effective May 1, 2015.

 Wikimedia Deutschland is shaped by the work of volunteers as well as paid
 professionals. Christian Rickerts comes with experience from both
 perspectives. In 1995, he co-founded Schüler Helfen Leben e. V., a
 non-profit association that promotes equal access to education for children
 and young people in the Balkans. Later, he served as the association’s
 first Executive Director and led the Schüler Helfen Leben Foundation. After
 that, he worked in the for-profit as well as the non-profit sector, first
 as a consultant for strategy and organizational development at Capgemini,
 then as the Executive Director of the German section of Reporters Without
 Borders. Since 2012, he has been Vice President Corporate Communication at
 the Bertelsmann Stiftung, the largest privately held non-profit foundation
 in Germany.

 Christian’s profound knowledge of the intersection between voluntary and
 paid work as well as his value-driven thinking and methodological diversity
 have deeply impressed us. We are thrilled to get him on board and to shape
 Wikimedia Deutschland’s future together. Christian is highly motivated to
 join the Wikimedia movement. We are confident that he is the perfect fit
 for the role of the Executive Director.

 Jan Engelmann will continue to be our interim ED until May. On behalf of
 the board, I would like to express my gratitude for his outstanding
 efforts. A huge thank you goes to the transition team[1], which has
 planned, led, and brought this collaborative process to a successful close
 within eight months. The team was constituted in June 2014, composed of
 members of our board as well as representatives of our staff, our members
 and the German Wikimedia community. The work of the team has been
 straightforward and exceptional. We are convinced that their experience is
 highly valuable for the broader movement. Therefore, the team is planning
 to share their insights and learnings at the upcoming Wikimedia Conference.

 Starting in May, you will have the chance to join us in providing Christian
 with a warm welcome to the Wikiverse. Many of you will meet Christian at
 the Wikimedia Conference in May. He is also planning to attend Wikimania in
 July.

 Best regards,
 Tim Moritz Hector
