Hi all,

just a short rectification: We have up to 2 (not 3) appointed seats in the
board. So in total our board consists of 9 members: 7 elected by the
general assembly and 2 appointed.

I am happy that now, with the appointment of Gabriele and Peter, we have
all seats on our board filled.

Best regards,
