As already announced in March 2017, Norbert Winkeljohann will also be proposed as a new member of the Supervisory Board. He is Chairman of the Management Board of PricewaterhouseCoopers Europe and Spokesman of the Executive Board in Germany, but is due to leave the company on June 30, 2018. It is proposed that he joins Deutsche Bank’s Supervisory Board as of August 1, 2018.
The new members will succeed Dina Dublon, Louise Parent, Henning Kagermann and Johannes Teyssen, whose terms of office expire as scheduled. None are available for re-election, although Dina Dublon has offered to remain in office for a transitional period that will end on July 31, 2018.
At the same time, the Supervisory Board has also nominated Gerd Alexander Schütz for re-election. Schütz was initially elected to the Supervisory Board for one year by the 2017 Annual General Meeting. He is now to be elected for another five years.
“We are delighted to have been able to attract such highly qualified new members, each with many years of experience in the financial sector,” said Chairman of the Supervisory Board Paul Achleitner. He added: “They will ideally contribute to the wealth of skills that our Supervisory Board brings together.”
Achleitner thanked the retiring members of the Supervisory Board: “Dina Dublon, Louise Parent, Henning Kagermann and Johannes Teyssen have made valuable contributions to the Supervisory Board during what have been challenging times. I would like to thank them most sincerely for their dedication and tireless commitment to Deutsche Bank, also on behalf of my colleagues.”
