February 24, 2022 – Two new members are to be appointed to the Supervisory Board of Mercedes-Benz Group AG. The current Supervisory Board members Bader M. Al Saad (64) and Prof. Dr. Clemens Börsig (73) will step down from their positions when their current periods of office expire at the 2022 Annual General Meeting. At that AGM on 29 April, Dame Polly Courtice (69) and Marco Gobbetti (63) will be proposed for election to the Supervisory Board as their successors.
The strategic realignment of Mercedes-Benz is based on the conviction that the foundation for a successful luxury strategy is sustainability. Mercedes-Benz aims to take a leading position in the automotive industry in both areas. I am therefore delighted that with Dame Polly Courtice and Marco Gobbetti, we have been able to gain two outstanding candidates who will enrich the Supervisory Board with their experience and perspectives. Dame Polly Courtice is one of the world’s most renowned ESG experts and Marco Gobbetti has unrivalled entrepreneurial experience in the luxury-goods industry.
