A change is pending on the board of the Pensionskasse der Wacker Chemie VVaG. Effective July 1, 2022, Götz Neumann (63), CEO of the pension fund, and Daniela Böning (60), member of the board of the pension fund, will retire. At the same time, they will be succeeded by Frank Reinhardt (53) as CEO and Eva Appel (49) as a member of the Executive Board.

Christian Hartel, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the WACKER pension fund, thanked the two outgoing Executive Board members for their dedicated and successful work at today’s general meeting: “Both Daniela Böning and Götz Neumann can look back on many years of successful careers at the WACKER Group.

Especially in the past difficult years, the two of them have steered our pension fund through turbulent waters with a lot of commitment and expertise.”
