Esen / Stuttgart (APA / Reuters) – Outgoing Daimler CFO Bodo Webber becomes the chairman of the Supervisory Board of the German competitor voestalpina Thissenkrupp, who is undergoing restructuring. Webber should first be appointed to the supervisory board to take over the presidency, said two people familiar with the process Monday.
About Personalie first reported "Handelsblatt". Currently, the schedule and other details of the planned appointment are discussed, say the papers. It is unlikely that Webber will retire.
Webber will stop in 2019 as CFO in Daimler. He was considered to be the candidate for the post of executive director, who will now be taken over by his colleague Ola Kallenius. After leaving Daimler Webber, there would be time to follow a complex process of reconstruction in Thissenkrupp. He has experience in restructuring, and in Daimler he was part of a leadership team that returned the group to form after unsuccessful merger with Chrisler. Both Daimler and Thissenkrupp did not want to comment on the report.
