Former Secretary of State Martin Biesel was appointed Secretary General of the Westerwelle Foundation. The Board and Alexander Vogel have agreed to part by mutual consent.
“Fortunately, Martin Biesel was willing to accept the honorary position as Secretary General. He is an experienced international manager and was one of the closest companion of Guido. I look forward to working with him”, said Michael Mronz, Chairman of the Board.
The succession became necessary after the Board and former Secretary General Alexander Vogel have agreed to part by mutual consent. “From the beginning Alexander Vogel has built the Foundation, has kept it on course even in difficult times and made it a respected and renowned partner. I am grateful to Alexander Vogel for his outstanding engagement and his successful work as Secretary General and previously as Head of Office for the Westerwelle Foundation”, said Mronz.
