Planned changes to the Shareholder Committee and Supervisory Board of HELLA GmbH & Co. KGaA
 
  • Carl-Peter Forster proposed as Chairman of the Shareholder Committee

  • Klaus Kühn shall lead the Supervisory Board in the future

Lippstadt, 14 August, 2019. HELLA GmbH & Co. KGaA has today published its invitation to the Annual General Meeting to be held on 27 September 2019, thereby announcing the election proposals for the regular elections to the Shareholder Committee and the shareholder side of the Supervisory Board. Accordingly, automobile manager Carl-Peter Forster (65), who has served as a Member of the Board of Management responsible for production at BMW and Chairman of the Board of Management at Opel, General Motors Europe and Tata Motors, will be proposed as Chairman of the Shareholder Committee. Klaus Kühn (67), former Chief Financial Officer of Bayer AG and current member of the HELLA Shareholder Committee and Supervisory Board, is scheduled to serve as the future Chairman of the Supervisory Board. With Carl-Peter Forster and Klaus Kühn, two internationally experienced top managers would again take over the leadership of the respective committees in the event of their election and enrich them with external expertise and proven expert knowledge.
The previous chairmen Manfred Wennemer (71), Chairman of the Shareholder Committee since 2013, and Prof. Dr. Michael Hoffmann-Becking (76), Chairman of the Supervisory Board since 2004, are not available for re-election and will therefore resign from their respective bodies upon expiry of their term of office on the day of the Annual General Meeting.
