Ms. Ryan Berman joined Tanger’s Board of Directors in January 2009 and has been responsible for business development, consumer strategies and retail operations at leading global fashion and luxury goods companies for more than three decades. She has served in various executive leadership capacities, including Chief Experience and Strategy Officer for Enjoy Technology and Chief Executive Officer at Victoria’s Secret Direct.
A member of the Board since July 2018, Ms. Skerritt is a Senior Advisor to Promontory Financial Group, an IBM company, guiding clients on regulatory, governance, and risk management matters. She was formerly Chairwoman, Chief Executive Officer and President of Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas.

SCRAEGG wins German Design Award 2020
Multifunctional appliance for preparing snacks: jury praises the simplicity of the compact design
SCRAEGG is one of the winners in the “Excellent Product Design Kitchen” category of the German Design Award. In total, the jury evaluated over 5,000 entries in three categories. The prize has been awarded annually by the German Design Council since 2012, and honours the most innovative product and communication designs.
The expert jury recognized the clean design of the SCRAEGG PRO unit, where form clearly follows function. The jury also praised the compact dimensions of the device, as “it fits practically anywhere” and is very easy to operate. All in all, it was declared a “clever product with a good business idea behind it”. The event organisers set themselves the task of awarding prizes to pioneering entries that lead the way in the international design landscape. Several winners were chosen in each category, including the Thermomix TM6, a mini coffee machine from Lavazza, and a kitchen appliance from Siemens.
The SCRAEGG device with patented steam nozzle has been on the market since 2018, and many bakeries, food outlets, hotels and fitness studios are already enjoying the stylish, bright yellow appliance, which is no bigger than a coffee machine but can still prepare a variety of different snacks. It takes a maximum of twenty seconds to prepare a scrambled egg, porridge, soup or dessert using steam – without unpleasant odours or the need for fat or oil.
The number of entries for the German Design Award is growing year on year – with more than 5000 this year. More than half of the submissions came from other countries, which also shows that the German Design Award is one of the most recognised design competitions in the world. The jury consists of experts from industry, academia and science, as well as the design industry. The German Design Council, which awards the prize every year, was founded in 1953 as an initiative of the German Bundestag and is today one of the world’s leading competence centres for communication and brand management in the field of design.
This award is a great honour for the young company SCRAEGG. “We invested a lot of time and money in developing the functionality and design of our product. As we designed the device especially for use in the visible area behind counters, an attractive appearance was extremely important to us. Therefore, we are very pleased to receive this award for its design, in addition to the one we got at the HOST for its functionality,” says Christ Rapp, Sales Manager of SCRAEGG.
