The Management Board and the Supervisory Board of AGRAVIS Raiffeisen AG have noted with regret that Management Board member Dirk Bensmann has requested the short-term dissolution of his contract for health reasons. This request was fulfilled by the Supervisory Board. Dirk Bensmann has therefore resigned from his position on the Executive Board as of 31 July.
The departure requires a reorganization of the Executive Board departments. The tasks of Bensmann are distributed between CEO Andreas Rickmers, CFO Johannes Schulte-Althoff and COO Maria-Johanna Schaecher.
The successor search has already begun on the part of the Supervisory Board.
“We thank Mr. Bensmann for his great commitment - he played a decisive role in shaping the AGRAVIS Group,” said Franz-Josef Holzenkamp as Chairman of the Supervisory Board and Andreas Rickmers, Chairman of the Management Board of AGRAVIS Raiffeisen AG.
