In 2020, after six years service in the Eastern Europe Territory (Ukraine, Georgia, Romania and Moldova) Majors Beat and Annette Rieder-Pell were appointed to take up new appointments as Leaders for Greece (Italy and Greece Command).
Previously they had served 33 and 36 Years in the The Salvation Army in Switzerland, Austria, German, Canada, the United Kingdom and Eastern Europe. In these nations they were appointed in different capacities from Corps leader (Church), Youthwork, Divisional Leaders and Territorial Headquarter for Program and Business administration.
