There's a German saying: "Wer rastet, der rostet" which translates to "He who rests, grows rusty." And to keep ourselves flexible and adaptable, our offices have had a history of exchange across the Atlantic. Our most recent transplant in the New York office, Nadir Abdessemed, will be returning to the Stuttgart office, as of this June, after two and a half years here. As with our previous German transplants, (Peter Voit, Markus Krauß, Matthias Rudolph, Dietmar Geiselmann, Martin Engelhardt, Katrin Müllner) we have learned much from each other, both as colleagues, as friends and as ping pong adversaries.
Cheers Nadir! Looking forward to getting schooled in "tischtennis" on the other side of the pond!
