HSH Nordbank announces that it welcomes the proposal to nominate Hilmar Kopper as Chairman of the Bank's Supervisory Board.
"Hilmar Kopper is not only an extremely experienced banker, but also an outstanding personality. I therefore expect him to be elected Chairman of the Supervisory Board. In this position he will provide crucial support in implementing the realignment of the Bank", said CEO Dirk Jens Nonnenmacher. "This will enable us to continue even more forcefully along the path of consolidating the Bank and focusing on its core areas of business."
Hilmar Kopper had recently expressed his willingness to stand for the position of Supervisory Board Chairman.
"I have known and esteemed Mr. Hilmar Kopper for many years and am therefore delighted that he is available for this office. He will contribute both his outstanding lifetime achievements and exceptional professional and managerial experience to this demanding position.
