He will officially resign his position on November 30th 2015. The Board of Directors of the FTTH Council Europe will assess the next steps in the coming weeks.

We regret his decision to step down, but understand his personal motivation and accept his decision. Now we will ensure a smooth transition period towards November 30th, and we will start the process of finding a new Director-General as successor of Hartwig. ”
