Werner Brandt has resigned from his seat on the Supervisory Board of Deutsche Lufthansa AG for personal reasons, effective December 31, 2017, the company said.
The former CFO of Fresenius Medical Care and SAP has been a Member of the Supervisory Board of Lufthansa since 2008 and has chaired the auditing committee of the Supervisory Board since 2014.
The nomination committee has recommended that Carsten Knobel be appointed to the vacant seat on the Supervisory Board. Knobel, 48, holds degrees in business administration and chemistry and has been the CFO and Member of the Executive Board Henkel AG & Co. KGaA since 2012. In early January, the Executive Board of Deutsche Lufthansa AG will be filing a request for a court appointment of Carsten Knobel with the local court in Cologne, limited until the conclusion of the next annual general meeting of Deutsche Lufthansa AG in May 2018.
