in the company Schoeps Schalltechnik and since 15 years I am the company's Managing
Director. Moreover, since quite a long time I consider Jerry Bruck a friend of
The reason for
this meeting is to announce officially that, with effect from the first of January
of this year, the right to import our products into the United States has been

often in the past other companies of considerable economic potential had introduced
themselves to me in order to apply for the right to import Schoeps products into
the United States of America. I have always refused. Not only Jerry's success

It is up to
me to thank Jerry for more than 25 years of fidelity towards our company and for
his readiness to cooperate in these times of change.In recognition of Jerry's
merits I have arranged for a medal of honor to be made, a microphone array that

that he will find special cases of application for this tool, too.
Jerry, I thank you for 26 years of commitment, for your readiness to cooperate, and for your friendship.
