And he added: “I value the contributions of the outgoing GSE President Nicole Otterberg and her predecessor Jean-Marc Leroy, now GIE President. Year 2016 will be busy and challenging but I feel privileged to lead GSE and look forward to working with a team of dedicated people who can add value to the discussions with EU decision makers and stakeholders.”
