We cordially welcome Consul General Thomas H. Meister to his post in Houston.  His domain will encompass the states of Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas.  We wish him a lucky hand in all his endeavors, and that he will find out the true meaning of the native American word Texas: “friend.”  You can find his extensive CV on the website of the Consulate General Houston: http://www.germany.info/Vertretung/usa/en/03__Consulates/Houston/02/consul-meister.html.
