thyssenkrupp extends contract

Published by
World Cement,

The Supervisory Board of thyssenkrupp AG has extended the contract of Dr. Donatus Kaufmann (53) by five years, to 31 January 2022. Dr. Kaufmann is a member of the Executive Board responsible for Legal and Compliance. He has been a member of the Executive Board since February 2014 and is also responsible for the north America and Western Europe regions.

“The extension of Dr. Kaufmann’s contract is a clear signal that compliance continues to be a top priority at thyssenkrupp,” says 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.
