In its meeting today, the supervisory board of CURANUM AG, Munich, one of the largest private operators of senior citizen care facilities in Germany, has appointed Mr. Walther Wever (54) as management board member effective as of October 1, 2010, and as management board chairman (CEO) of the company. Following the dismissal of Mr. Bernd Rothe on September 3, 2010, Mr. Wever will hold this post on an interim basis up to June 30, 2011. Commenting on the appointment, supervisory board chairman Dr. Dieter Thomae stated: "We made a well considered decision for this course of action. In Mr. Wever we have succeeded in gaining an entrepreneurially minded personality drawing on extensive management experience in the industrial arena. We are confident that this appointment will mark a major step for the positive future development of Curanum. The supervisory board will now embark on the search for an appropriate long-term candidate, without being subject to undue time pressure in the process." Walther Wever was born in 1955 in Essen, and studied law and economic science at the Universities of Freiburg and Delaware, USA. On completing his studies, he worked for several years as corporate counsel at VTG GmbH, Hamburg, and switched to the controlling department of VARTA AG in 1987, where he was responsible for finances in his last post as CFO. Following the sale of the company to Johnson Controls Inc. Milwaukee (JCI), Walther Wever was successfully active as board chairman of VARTA Automotive AG from 2002 to 2009. In his new functions at CURANUM, Mr. Wever will contribute his extensive, in-depth experience in the successful management and further development of personnel intensive corporations, and also draw on his network in financial circles in his position as interim manager. Walther Wever will be mainly responsible for corporate management and strategy, mergers and acquisitions as well as the investor relations area. "I look forward to this new task scope that entails operational as well as strategic challenges," as Wever stated. He went on to add: "I am optimistic that we will return Curanum AG to the successful course the company has charted over so many years." With the appointment of Mr. Walther Wever as CEO, the management board now consists of three members again, with Ms. Judith Barth active as CFO and Ms. Sabine Merazzi-Weirich holding the position of COO.
