Dr Stefan Franzke, Managing Director of Berlin Partner: “I would like to thank Michael Biel for taking over the position of Chairman of the Supervisory Board for the past few months. At the same time, I am looking forward to working with Carsten Jung, who has been associated with Berlin Partner for many years and, as a native Berliner, knows the dynamics of the city well. Berlin Partner stands for cooperation between business, politics and administration. Together we have achieved a lot and have made our contribution to the fact that Berlin continues to be so attractive to numerous companies and talented people from all over the world. Berlin has just been voted the best start-up location in Europe for the second time in a row in a survey of more than 24,000 founders. This gives us additional tailwind and yet we know that there is still a lot to do. I am therefore looking forward to the good and trusting cooperation with Carsten Jung.”

I would like to continue to contribute here in the future.”
Stephan Schwarz, Senator for Economics, Energy and Public Enterprises: “I am pleased that the Supervisory Board has elected Carsten Jung as Chairman today, who represents the Berlin Partner idea in an outstanding way.
