What can I say? Some of you know me, I think?

I was around at the start of Euro-IX, and served on the Board from the beginning for a long time. I've been CEO of LINX for what seems a *very* long time, but I am retiring from that role at the end of 2019.

I might say a bit about both of those things at the forum in Zandaam.
