Hanover, 5 March 2018 - Volker Pape, Executive Board member and co-founder of Viscom AG, is declaring his intention of resigning his Executive Board activity before this year's Annual General Meeting and in line with the proposal of the majority shareholder, HPC Vermögensverwaltung GmbH, of moving into the Viscom AG Supervisory Board. In the case of his election by the Annual General Meeting, Volker Pape will be available to the company on a consulting basis. The Supervisory Board welcomes this step on the way to long-term successor planning, securing as it does the further expansion and the resulting extension of the international business.

In the process, the future Executive Board is to be expanded to four persons. As successors to Mr Pape, the Supervisory Board has appointed as Executive Board members the two long-standing employees Peter Krippner and Carsten Salewski. Both have extensive management responsibility as sector and branch managers. Mr Salewski will be responsible for Sales and Mr Krippner for Operations.
