Dear customers, friends and business partners,

We have the very sad obligation to inform you that our mentor and friend Rainer Aberer and his wife Sharen Seversen died in a tragic plane crash in Texas (USA) in June.

Rainer and Sharen were both enthusiastic private pilots and flying their Cessna 182 when the accident occurred. Authorities are still trying to determine the exact cause of the plane crash.

Rainer's visions, guidance and philosophy resulted in a unique company culture and way of doing business. We will continue our work with the same open minded spirit Rainer demonstrated all through his life.
