Meet the DQB board!

 

Nina Heise - President

Nina found out about quidditch during her semester abroad at the University of Southampton. That was October 2013. Since then, she has played quidditch in four European countries and, after returning to Germany, founded the Frankfurt Mainticores. She also continues to play for international merc teams.

Because of her international contacts, Nina has been the DQB representative in the IQA Standing European Committee since summer 2014. Previous to her quidditch career, she has also gained several years of experience working with and being a board member at her local sports club and is thus no stranger to the organisational tasks that her work as DQB’s vice president encompasses. Furthermore, studying business management as a minor subject has given her insight into the financial and management aspects of big organisations.

 

Niklas Müller - Vice President

Niklas played quidditch for the first time in April 2015 with the then newly founded Heidelberger HellHounds. He quickly recognized how important knowledge of the rulebook is to ensure a properly structured and fair game. In October 2015, he and Saskia Busse founded the quidditch team Ruhr Phoenix in Bochum. Afterwards, he became a certified head referee and enjoyed referee duties at tournaments like the German championship and the European Quidditch Cup. At the IQA World Cup 2016 he was also responsible for some international games as head referee.

When he isn't involved with quidditch, Niklas spends his time in studying math at the Ruhr-Universität-Bochum.

 

Roman Kehrberger - Treasurer

Roman concluded his law studies in Heidelberg in January 2016 and is currently working on his doctorate in Heidelberg as well. He loves sports and did his civilian service at a sports club, administrating and designing sports offers for ages 1-92. His experiences as treasurer go back to different clubs where he was responsible for budgets in the five to six digits range and played an active role in the organisation of large-scale events. Roman joined DQB in December 2016 where he initially counseled the board in legal matters, moving up to become treasurer in September 2017.

Juliane Schillinger - Public Relations

Juliane started playing quidditch at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada, during her studies abroad in 2013. Upon her return to Germany she founded the Black Forest Bowtruckles in Freiburg, and, after leaving Germany to study in the Netherlands in fall 2014, the Wageningen Werewolves. She has been playing with Utrecht's Dom Tower Dementors since summer 2016.

Over the course of her studies, Juliane took several courses in public relations and event management, and represented her teams in the media. She now uses these experiences to promote the DQB as head of the Public Relations department.
