Opening doors –

that is one of the most noble tasks for a board of directors. Doors for employees and customers. Doors for ideas and innovations. Doors for progress and change. This editorial has to do with the last point, because it is the last time I will write to you here. At the end of the year, I will say goodbye to the Management Board of Dr. Sasse AG and move to the Supervisory Board. At the same time, I am opening the door for two great successors, our daughters Laura and Clara. From 1st January 2021, they will join the Executive Board, together with my wife, Christine, and Katja Böhmer. The four of them will make up the new Executive Board of our company. I am pleased to say with the utmost confidence and a clear conscience, that it is an experienced team to whom I entrust you.  And I ask you to return this trust. I would like to thank all those who have accompanied me on my entrepreneurial journey over the past 45 years. To my colleagues at all locations and in all business units. To the clients who have remained in good partnership with us. And to those who have opened the doors to new goals and projects for me. Much of what we have achieved and achieved together goes far beyond what can be formulated in a contract. You are all a stroke of luck for an entrepreneur. 

With that, I open the last remaining door – the one to this issue of our Newsletter. As always, a newsletter worth reading. Starting with the next newsletter, you will be able to read what my successors want to share with you. I invite you to look forward to it as much as I do. 

Best regards,

Dr. Eberhard Sasse
