New Chairman and CEO of Deutsche Lufthansa

At the close of the Annual General Meeting, Wolfgang Mayrhuber took over as Chairman and CEO of Deutsche Lufthansa AG. The new Lufthansa Supervisory Board held its customary constituent meeting at the close of the Annual General Meeting in Cologne today. Its members elected the outgoing Chairman and CEO of the Aviation Group, Jürgen Weber, as its new chairman. In that post, Jürgen Weber succeeds Dr. Klaus G. Schlede, who did not stand for re-election after a five-year term as Supervisory Board Chairman. Frank Bsirske was re-elected as Deputy Chairman.
The decision fell in the second ballot. This was necessary, in accordance with ¤ 27 para. 2 of the Co-Determination Law, since the first ballot failed to produce the required, qualified majorities.
