Our board of directors
The board was newly elected on 30 October 2023 and is made up of the following people:
Chairman (since 11/2021)
I am 45 years old and father of Henrik aus der Birke. My son Malte has been at the Montessori school for the last 4 years. His development has enabled us to recognise the benefits of our school and learning concept very well and we are delighted that he can contribute his experience to the secondary school
Since 2017, I have been responsible for the German business for the development of ground-mounted photovoltaic systems at a project developer for renewable energies.
1st Deputy Chairman (since 09/2022)
I am 48 years old and father of Max from the chestnut tree. The community and the school concept appealed to us from day one. Our son finds the right approach here and can develop in the best possible way.
Professionally, I work as Manager Customer Success for a large data centre operator and am responsible for their customers in Germany.
2nd Deputy Chairman (since 10/2023, previously Assessor since 11/2021)
I am 37 years old, married and have two children. My son Piet is in fourth grade at the Opal Group and feels very much at home here. I would like to give something back to the school from this positive spirit.
My main job (commercial pilot for a major German airline) is not particularly useful, but my IT affinity is. After studying mechanical engineering, I set up an engineering office as a second mainstay and have a creative balance to flying with web design, software development and IT consulting.
