After seven years together, we bid Petra Brzoska farewell at the end of August to her well-deserved retirement. We say "Thank you" for her excellent work and wish her only the best for this new stage of her life. And we are not letting her go quite yet - Petra Brzoska will continue to support us as a vacation replacement.
At the same time, we welcome Mandy Bruckhaus, who will manage our office from now on. The 34-year-old is a qualified wholesale and foreign trade merchant and has spent the past 14 years in a legal and economic environment. Now she is very much looking forward to her new role: "It was a happy coincidence that brought me here," she says, "I am looking forward to being able to do something new professionally and to developing personally as well. And to the varied work in this nice team".
By the way, Mandy is no stranger - she is the daughter-in-law of Melitta Bruckhaus, who was the good soul of our institute for more than 40 years until 2013.
We wish her a great start and are looking forward to the time together!
