Today, Monday, June 3, the newly appointed CEO Andreas Schierenbeck and CFO Sascha Bibert assume their positions at Uniper in Düsseldort. The Uniper Supervisory Board voted unanimously to approve their appointments at the beginning of May. Schierenbeck and Bibert succeed Klaus Schäfer and Christopher Delbrück, who stepped down from their positions on the Management Board as of May 31, 2019. When choosing their successors, the Uniper Supervisory Board was particularly concerned with getting two highly qualified and internationally experienced managers on board to lead Uniper into a successful future with a steady hand, especially in these challenging times.
Uniper's new CEO Andreas Schierenbeck comments: 'I am looking forward to my new responsibilities and have spent the last several weeks learning the ropes. My goal is to gain a comprehensive picture of Uniper, its culture, and its employees as quickly as possible. If there is one thing I have learned from working in the industrial sector for many years, it is that security of supply and affordable energy are decisive competitive factors for any industry. Here I see Uniper in a very important role.'
Uniper's new CFO Sascha Bibert comments: 'I am looking forward to being part of the Management Board team at Uniper and to applying my expertise at a company that has gained a great reputation in a very short period of time, both in the energy sector and in the capital market. I want to continue pursuing this success story together with the entire Uniper team.'
