Change in the management of SAZ
As the new manager of Spiele-Autoren-Zunft e.V., Hans-Peter Stoll (46) will take over a large part of the responsibilities of Christian Beiersdorf (71) as of August 1, 2020, including membership administration, all organizational tasks, and media communications. The SAZ is thus setting the course for a generational change in management. However, Christian Beiersdorf will continue to work as a consultant for copyright issues and public affairs in the management; his current contact data remain unchanged.
Hans-Peter Stoll has been a game designer since 2003 and an SAZ member since 2007. His first game was "Freeze" (later "Bühne frei" at Ravensburger), the first improvisational theatre game ever. He is an improvisational actor himself and also works on many creative, artistic levels as well as a freelance consultant and trainer. For many years he was a moderator at the German Game Designer Conference in Weilburg.
The SAZ board thanks Christian Beiersdorf for his work so far, which has contributed significantly to the professionalization of the organisation and looks forward to working with Hans-Peter Stoll.
