The energy company Uniper staggered in the gas crisis, is being nationalized and is now getting new supervisors.
With the planned change of ownership to the federal government, there will be changes in the supervisory board, the company announced in Düsseldorf.
Four new members were nominated for the control body.
Tom Blades, Jutta Dönges, Marcus Schenck and Ines Zenke are to move into the supervisory board.
Dönges and Zenke are sent by the federal government.
Blades, who used to be the head of the Bua group Bilfinger, takes over the chairmanship.
Dönges was managing director of the finance agency until October and as such was responsible for the economic stabilization fund, among other things.
As an investment banker for Lazard, Schenck advises the federal government on the stabilization of Uniper.
Energy lawyer Zenke is a partner and co-owner of the commercial law firm Becker Büttner Held.
Blades, Dönges, Schenck and Zenke are to succeed the representatives of the previous main shareholder Fortum on the supervisory board, whose resignation is expected after the extraordinary general meeting taking place next Monday.
The Uniper Management Board then intends to apply to the Düsseldorf District Court for the appointment of the new supervisory board members.
According to the information, a constitutive meeting of the Supervisory Board is still planned for 2022.
