As you all may remember Ed Cox is going to step back from his office as General Secretary. Meike Greten is nominated for this office, so here are some about her for all of you who don´t know Meike, yet:

Meike Greten, geb. Friedhoff, 36 years old, married with Tom Greten
Born in a sailing family, no optimist dinghy experience 😉
Started sailing in 1995 with 470, sailed from 1996 to 1999 as crew and helm 420, sailed many years Schwertzugvogel (and Kiel Week with Kielzugvogel), started FD sailing in 2012 with Tom in Altea for the European Championship and was immediately infected…. Bought a boat and sailed till our daughter Caya came in October 2015.
Did my trainer license in 1996-1998 (Trainer B) and took care of the Teeny Kader Niedersachsen from 1999-2003. Did a lot of trainings in Teeny and 420 class. Since 2011 I’m training the race officers in northern saxony.
I was chairman of Segler-Verein Großenheidorn for 4 years, worked many years as public relations person for the Schwertzugvogel class.
Jobwise I’m working for my own company with the focus on business process consulting, quality management, project management, software development, moderation and workshops. I worked for some software companies in Sales, Presales, Alliance Management and Project Management.
Currently I’m quite involved in all the organization of the World Championship 2016.
