It is currently the most important topic of conversation at a Bank location Frankfurt is Wirecard, apart from the Bust of the Aschheimer payment service provider: Who will be the new Supervisory Board – and who the leading Duo of Martin Zielke and Stefan schmittmann came to the chief Executive officer of Commerzbank, after last week’s surprise return? On Wednesday in any case, the Supervisory Board met on these issues – apparently, nine hours to deliver without any significant results. After all, the Bank announced in the evening, I decided the control panel of the amicable termination of Zielkes contract. He declared, “until the appointment of a successor to the business of the Bank in full to continue”, but at the latest until the end of the year. After SZInformation he receives his contract would still run until 2023, paid out, even though he had offered his resignation himself.

Whoever follows him and, therefore, in the case of the part nationalised MDax group, a further savings is advancing, was still unclear, as well as who will lead the Supervisory Board in the future. How to listen to was, are entrusted to the three Supervisory Board members Jutta Dönges, Gertrude Tumpel-Gugerell and Nicholas Teller with the successor search. A successor for Schmitt, man, you want to then, at the next Supervisory Board meeting on November 3. August present. From the ranks of the Board, no one was willing to take the chair.

In addition, the strategy was to plan the removal of almost 10 000 jobs by 2023, which is calculated on the number of 39 800 full-time every fourth place in the group matches. That would be a lot of.
