I had sent my advance letter to Mr. G. Mayer-Voffelder-Chairman. Denise Rennmann, Media Relations, steps out into the lobby and says Mayer-Voffelder is retired and was never was an executive but head of the supervisory board. "Would someone else have opened the letter and passed it on?", I ask. She doesn't know but smugly goes on to say "the current CEO wouldn't be interested in the company participating in your project".
