Managing Committee to make the following proposal to the Supervisory Board on 20 September 2000
The Managing Committee of the Supervisory Board of Deutsche Lufthansa AG will propose to the Supervisory Board at its next meeting on 20 September 2000, that it extend the appointment of Jürgen Weber (58) as Chairman of the Executive Board of Deutsche Lufthansa AG to 31 December 2003.
“In view of the outstanding achievements of Jürgen Weber, it is in the interests of the company to reach an appropriate agreement as soon as possible about the proposed re-appointment”, according to the Chairman of the Supervisory Board, Dr. Klaus G. Schlede.
It will also be proposed to the Supervisory Board, within the framework of the further development of the Group`s Executive Board structure, that a “Passenger” function is established directly within the Group Executive Board. “The successful activities of the Airline Board of Lufthansa German Airlines since April 1997 will be further up-graded through this move”, explained Lufthansa Chairman Jürgen Weber.
Wolfgang Mayrhuber (53) is to be appointed a member of the Executive Board of Lufthansa AG, responsible for German Lufthansa Airlines, as of 1.1.2001. In this function, Mr. Mayrhuber will simultaneously become Chairman of the Airline Board of Lufthansa German Airlines. Mr. Mayrhuber joined Lufthansa in 1970 and since October 1994, has been the Chairman of the Board of Lufthansa Technik AG.
Dr. Karl-Friedrich Rausch (49), currently Chairman of the Airline Board of Lufthansa German Airlines is to be appointed as of 1.1.2001 as Executive Vice President and General Representative, responsible for “Group Infrastructure”. The recent past has shown that the infrastructural environment is becoming a decisive competitive factor for the success of an airline. Themes such as the solution of European air traffic control problems, the further expansion of Frankfurt Airport, the extension of the terminal in Munich, demand an increasingly coordinated presence of the Group in the public discussion, according to Weber.
