Composition of the Management Board and the Supervisory Board

      Professional suitability (i.e., whether the candidate possesses the requisite competence and experience) and personality traits (e.g., personal integrity) are material criteria in the selection and appointment of Management Board members. In addition, age and gender are also factors in the decision-making process. Independent management audits by external advisers, which are conducted as necessary, ensure that the decisions are based on objective evaluations.
