New vzbv Executive Director Ramona Pop: "Crisis management only works in tandem with strong consumers"
Ramona Pop took over as Executive Director of the Federation of German Consumer Organisations (vzbv) from interim Executive Director Jutta Gurkmann. The 44-year-old Pop was previously mayor and senator for economy, energy and public enterprises in Berlin and, from 2009 to 2016, parliamentary group leader of the Green Party in the Berlin House of Representatives. Pop sees the consumer price crisis as her greatest current task. As head of vzbv, she also wants to ensure that policy-makers tackle the major challenges of the future with the interests of consumers at heart.
