Dear all,

I am delighted to announce that Wikimedia Deutschland’s Board has taken the
opportunity to appoint two new members for the first time. Dr. Gabriele
Theren and Peter Dewald are taking appointed seats in our board.

After our general assembly decided to make way for up to 3 appointed seats,
we created a profile of skills we would like to add to the board. We
focussed on the future of Wikimedia Deutschland, strategically and
financially, and got about 60 applications. Many of them showed impressive
profiles, striving for Free Knowledge.

We decided for Gabriele, who is a trained lawyer, mediator and serves as
department head in the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs in the German
federal state of Saxony-Anhalt. We also elected Peter who has 35 years of
expertise as managing director at Apple and the software group Sage, was
member of the board of Germany’s digital association Bitkom and has a lot
of experience in volunteer work.

Both will be members of the board until the next election by the general
assembly in about one year. Please join me in welcoming Gabriele and Peter
to the Wikiverse.

Best regards,
Tim Moritz Hector
