We are excited to announce a shift in our management structure here at Deutsche Cleft Kinderhilfe e.V.! Our co-founder Alexander Gross, who has directed DCKH’s growth from humble beginnings in 2002 to the global NGO we are now, is shifting laterally to the position of chairman of the board. Andrea Weiberg is stepping up to become our new operative managing director. Andrea, whose background is in business administration, has been directing our fundraising and public relations work since 2018.
Together, Alexander and Andrea form our new operational board of directors, supported by our two pro bono board members Prof. Dr. med. Frank Feyerherd (anesthetist) and Tom Schneider (entrepreneur). All four are experienced, long-term hands-on supporters of our global efforts to help cleft children in need.
With this new management structure, Deutsche Cleft Kinderhilfe e.V. is well set up, going into its 20-year anniversary in 2022, to continue our successful work and provide aid to ever more and more cleft patients in the developing countries.
