"On behalf of the KfW Executive Board and of the Supervisory Board at KfW IPEX-Bank, I would like to thank Mr Murach for his decades of dedicated work in various roles at KfW. He particularly deserves our gratitude for playing a leading part in supporting and guiding the spin-off of KfW IPEX-Bank. Thanks to his involvement, the bank - as a specialist financier supporting the German and European economies - has established itself as a reliable player among its customers and their consortium partners," commented Dr Norbert Kloppenburg, a member of the Executive Board at KfW and Chairman of the Supervisory Board at KfW IPEX-Bank GmbH, adding: "Thanks to a forward-looking plan of succession, KfW IPEX-Bank will remain in the control of a Management Board that has vast market experience and will ensure continuity."
Apart from a four-year hiatus, Claudia Schneider has worked for KfW since 1997, holding various management roles, and she has been General Manager of KfW IPEX-Bank since 2015. Andreas Ufer has worked in export and project finance at KfW since 1988 and has served on the Management Board at KfW IPEX-Bank since 2015.
Christian K. Murach joined KfW in 1984 and, after working for several years in various roles in KfW Group, has played a crucial role in past years particularly in shaping the strategic orientation of export and project finance. From 2004 he was involved in preparing the spin-off of KfW IPEX-Bank as a member of the bank's management, and, following its spin-off as a legally independent subsidiary in 2008, has been serving on its Management Board. In this role, he has made vital contributions in helping the newly founded KfW IPEX-Bank establish itself in its markets, and has managed the departments assigned to him with great success.
