New Director of IOI Germany
(Germany, January 2019)
Anna-Katharina Hornidge, has been appointed as new director of the International Ocean Institute in Germany effective from January 2019. The position had previously been filled for many years by Werner Ekau who is retiring later this year. We also take the opportunity to commend and thank Dr Ekau for the many years of support and dedication to the IOI through the actions of IOI Germany, and his advice and input during his tenure as Chair of Directors on the IOI Governing Board. His work over this time has been invaluable and essential in its many forms, and his genuine friendship always hugely appreciated. Antonella Vassallo, Managing Director of IOI headquarters in Malta, welcomed Professor Hornidge to the position: “We look forward to working with Anna-Katharina Hornidge and to further enhancing the strong and fruitful relationship with IOI Germany. Her professional and personal qualities will be an asset to the role”, Ms. Vassallo wrote in a letter confirming the succession.
