Ad hoc: Change: CEO Karl-Heinz Stiller to go onto the Supervisory Board, CFO Eckard Heidloff new CEO
At an extraordinary meeting, the Supervisory Board of Wincor Nixdorf AG, Paderborn, approved a request by Chief Executive Karl-Heinz Stiller on November 8, 2006 to release him from his post with effect from the close of the next Annual General Meeting on January 29, 2007. The current Chief Financial Officer and Deputy CEO, Eckard Heidloff, was unanimously elected to succeed him. This decision sees Wincor Nixdorf putting a younger man at the helm and, at the same time, ensuring management continuity.
At the same time as this decision, Supervisory Board Chairman Johannes Huth informed the Supervisory Board that he is also to relinquish his position at the close of the AGM on January 29, 2007. The Supervisory Board has decided to propose to the AGM that Karl-Heinz Stiller be elected as a new member of the Supervisory Board. Should he be elected by the AGM, Karl-Heinz Stiller will then put his name forward for election as Chairman of the Supervisory Board.
