It is an honour and I am extremely happy for this opportunity and the confidence the girls have showed while choosing me for this important role which I take seriously,Valentin said and added:

I have the advantage and blessing of being surrounded by many teammates with experience who are also leaders who I can trust to take the best decisions as a team”
