He comes to the role at a very exciting time for the Web, especially regarding the emergence of the Web on mobile platforms and devices.
> Guenter has many years of experience in the mobile telecoms industry and witnessed the challenges of innovation in various functions. His team has been involved in a variety of specification work in several additional organisations besides W3C, overall in areas as diverse as device and network APIs, device and software management, messaging, mobile web, runtimes and browsers, NFC, payment, advertising, solutions for vertical industries and others.

Thank you all for your great support over the years. Although I wonít be playing such a direct role in w3c activities in my new position, I am sure you will continue to see me around.
> Regarding my participation in the TAG, I would like say a special thank you to Tim, Noah and all the members of the TAG. Itís been an immense honor to be able to serve in this body. It is clear to me that the TAG plays a vital role in the W3C and in the larger standards ecosystem. I very much encourage you to put forward candidates for the current election cycle (for which the nomination period closes at the end of the month). I am more than happy to answer any questions on the TAG or you can talk to Noah Mendelsohn.
