With great sadness and dismay BCIX e.V. announces that Peter Lampe, the chairman of the association, passed away unexpectedly at the age of 56 on the first weekend of December.

Since 2002, Peter Lampe made significant contributions in shaping the fortunes of BCIX. As a founding member, he played a decisive role in successfully establishing the BCIX in Berlin-Brandenburg and was also an active part of the Internet community. Together with his colleagues on the board, who changed over the years, he achieved with great commitment that the BCIX became an important Internet Exchange Point in Europe.

Out of respect and recognition for Peter, the position of Chairman of the Board will remain vacant until the next General Assembly, in accordance with the statutes.

In deep sorrow
Cordula Fiedler, André Grüneberg, Kay Rechthien, Pascal Kube,
the members of the advisory board and all employees of BCIX Management GmbH
