The Board of Directors proposes to the shareholders the election of Dr. Edeltraud Leibrock, a proven digitization expert, as a new member of the Board of Directors. The nomination is the result of a thorough search process that is part of the Board of Directors' long-term succession planning and is intended to expand the panel by one to a total of six members.
Dr. Edeltraud Leibrock has many years of management, consulting and technical expertise in the innovation, transformation and governance of IT- and technology-driven organizations. Since 2021 she has been Managing Partner of the Munich-based consultancy Publicis Sapient, which focuses on digital business transformation.

In 2016, she founded and became Managing Partner of Connected Innovations GmbH in Hamburg, a specialist consultancy focused on artificial intelligence and automation.
After studying mathematics, biology and physics at the University of Regensburg, Dr. Leibrock received her doctorate in natural sciences (Dr. rer. nat.) from Hamburg University of Technology. Her research work in mass spectrometry and metrology took her to the Fraunhofer Institute in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, and to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in Boulder, CO, USA.
She is engaged on several advisory boards, such as at the Artificial Intelligence Center Hamburg; at Suntrace GmbH in Hamburg; at Loanboox GmbH (Cologne/Zurich); as well as at Deutscher Gründerverband, a German entrepreneurs' association based in Munich.
