Halberstadt is the successor of Ernst van der Beugel in the administration of Bilderberg. Van der Beugel wrote in a book of congratulations made for Halberstadt: "Around 1980 - Bilderberg had been around for more than 25 years - the "inner circle" decided that the time had come to rejuvenate Bilderberg and to transfer control to a generation that could be regarded as the successor to the "establishment "of the fifties and sixties". 'The Honorary Secretary General's choice was crucial to that rejuvenation. The choice fell on Victor and that is not nothing."
