The Supervisory Board of the Daimler Group is facing a personnel change. “At the end of the Annual General Meeting on March 31, 2021, the term of office of the long-term chairman, Manfred Bischoff, ends according to schedule, and he is stepping down from the committee. With him, Petraea Heynike and Jürgen Hambrecht will also leave the Supervisory Board of Daimler AG, ”the car manufacturer announced on Thursday. The positions must therefore be filled by the shareholders of the DAX-listed car manufacturer at the upcoming general meeting.
Daimler today presented proposals for the successors to the three departing Supervisory Board members. Former BMW boss Bernd Pischetsrieder is to become the new chairman of the supervisory board. Pischetsrieder has been a member of the committee since 2014. Elizabeth Centoni, Senior Vice President Cisco Strategy and Emerging Technology, Ben van Beurden, CEO of Royal Dutch Shell Plc, and BASF CEO Martin Brudermüller are proposed for the three vacant positions on the supervisory body.
