Rita Pawelski joined GPLUS in August 2013 and brings to the company a wealth of experience from different political arenas as well as an excellent network: she has been a longstanding Member of the German Bundestag (2002 to 2013), as well as the state parliament of Lower-Saxony (1990 to 2002), and was a candidate for mayor of the state capital Hannover (1996, 2001).
