The leading trio was elected at the BSI Annual General Meeting on May 6, 2017 in Fulda. In order to allow for a committee of three people, the BSI members first had to vote for a charter amendment. Before the association was led by just one president.
“Due to the resignation of our previous President (Désirée Derin-Holzapfel, editor’s note), the BSI has been led by the three vice presidents on an interim basis for the past year and a half. In this time we have had some great experiences with the collegial principle so we think it is the ideal future management model for our association”, announced BSI Managing Director Nicole Espey.
Other elected members of the board were: Schatzmeister Wolfgang Kraus (Fashy GmbH), Siegfried Paßreiter (Fischer Deutschland GmbH), Andreas Schechinger (Tatonka GmbH), Johannes Maier (Eurotramp-Trampoline GmbH), Mark-Oliver Liedtke (fortuna s-i-b, G. Paulig e.K.) and Henrik Holzapfel (Suedwind Equestrian)
