October 19, 2018

Nikolaus von Bomhard, who retired as CEO of Munich Re in April 2017, is likely to return to the German reinsurer as chairman of the supervisory board.

This week, Munich Re’s nomination committee recommended to the full supervisory board that von Bomhard, 62, be nominated for election at the annual general meeting in 2019.

If elected, von Bomhard would succeed Bernd Pischetsrieder as chairman. Von Bomhard was a member of the board of management of Munich Re from January 2000 to April 2017, and took over as its chairman in January 2004.

As an acknowledged expert and industry professional, he has “the comprehensive knowledge of the business that is so important for the work of the supervisory board,” said the company in a statement.

Since April 2018, von Bomhard has been the chairman of the supervisory board of Deutsche Post DHL Group.
