Executive Board (Financial Year 2017)

The Executive Board of Deutsche EuroShop AG is the Group’s management body.
The Executive Board is bound to observe the interests of the Company and aims to increase its enterprise value in the long term.


Our members of the Executive Board:

The Executive Board of Deutsche EuroShop AG manages the Company in accordance with the provisions of German company law and with its rules of procedure. The Executive Board’s duties, responsibilities and business procedures are laid down in its rules of procedure and in its schedule of responsibilities. The chief management duties of the Executive Board are the management of the Group and the determination of its strategic orientation, planning, and the establishment, implementation and monitoring of risk management.


The diversity concept of the Supervisory Board for the Executive Board which originated in 2015 was given concrete shape and expanded in April 2017. It proposes that the Executive Board should consist of members of both sexes with a proportion of women of at least 30%. The composition of the Executive Board should be geared towards the needs of a listed company with a small staff base. This should take into account the requirements of accounting with high capital investment as well as the largely national activities in long-term investment in retail properties. The members of the Executive Board are expected to have knowledge and experience in the application of accounting principles and internal control procedures according to German and/or international accounting standards, in the retail trade as well as in the management of shopping centers, in equity and debt financing, capital market, corporate governance, corporate and personnel management, corporate acquisitions and mergers, and in the purchase and sale of real estate. The focal points of knowledge and experience should complement each other.


The upper age limit for members of the Executive Board is 60.
