The Supervisory Board of thyssenkrupp AG has extended Dr Donatus Kaufmann’s contract by five years to 31 January 2022. Kaufmann is a member of the Executive Board responsible for Legal and Compliance and has been a member since February 2014 and is also responsible for the regions North America and Western Europe.
“The extension of Dr Kaufmann’s contract is a clear signal that compliance continues to be a top priority at thyssenkrupp,” said Professor Dr Ulrich Lehner, Chairman of the Supervisory Board. For thyssenkrupp compliance is a central element of good corporate governance and means more than abiding by the law and internal policies. Compliance is a question of mindset: reliability, honesty, credibility and integrity are part of thyssenkrupp’s values. Infringements, in particular violations of antitrust law and corruption, are met with a “zero tolerance” policy.
