DENIC logo[news release] At the ordinary General Assembly held today in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, the members of DENIC eG, the managing organisation and central registry of all domains under the top level domain .de, decided on the composition of the Cooperative’s bodies through 2019.

As an outcome of the elections of the Supervisory Board and the honorary members of the Executive Board, which are executed every three years in accordance with DENIC’s Statutes, there were four changes in the Cooperative’s top leadership. The Supervisory Board with immediate effect includes three new members being Christian Müller (Strato AG), Dennis Nizard (HEXONET GmbH) and Daniel Rink (Profihost AG). Two further members of the Supervisory Board – Thomas Keller (1&1 Internet AG), who will remain chairman, and Alexander Schwertner (EPAG Domainservices GmbH) – were re-elected and will continue for another period in office.

Also re-elected and confirmed in office was the honorary member of the Executive Board, Helga Krüger ( Internet GmbH); she is newly joined by Martin Küchenthal (LEMARIT GmbH).

The further course of the General Assembly proceeded as expected without any surprises: The financial statement for 2015 was unanimously approved, and discharge granted to the Executive and the Supervisory Boards without any opposing votes.

“The outcome of the elections is a vivid evidence of the high degree of participative culture DENIC is living up to as a major cooperative principle. As a result, we can benefit from the large resource of our membership who share the conviction of DENIC being ‘the leading registry’ and whose ambition is to actively contribute to continuing our story of success through their personal commitment“, summarised DENIC CEO Dr. Jörg Schweiger.
