Is that the same Clemens Toennies who is a major meat manufacturer and a known soccer official?
See for instance here (in German):

From reading the "meat king"'s biography I'd say definitely no.
However, he has a nephew also called Clemens. According to this article http://www.nw-news.de/owl/regionale_wirtschaft/5875170_Fa... the nephew owns 10% of the meat giant, which should be enough to be financially capable to sponsor some open source software. Whether he really is the same guy and whether he really puts meat money into the projects I don't know and I don't want to claim.
a quick search resulted in these sites registered by the same guy: http://www.interstel.de/
http://jack-n-joe.com/ (and a couple of variants)
http://netrunner-linux.com (*Green* systems)
He gives a phone number in the whois records, maybe somebody asks him for an interview and writes an article...
