Leminsky bows out of Grenke, Bücker steps in

15 June 2021


ntje Leminsky has decided for personal reasons to leave Grenke AG as of 30 June after eight years on the company’s board of directors, including three years as its chair.

The supervisory board has appointed Michael Bücker as chair of the board of directors, effective 1 August. Deputisation arrangements within the board will take hold during the transition period.

“Our latest annual and consolidated financial statements show that we have also coped well with the 2020 crisis year. The unqualified audit opinion from KPMG, our respectable business performance in the first months of 2021, and the regulatory audits that have now been completed substantiate the fact that Grenke AG is a resilient company and that the essential prerequisites for a sustainable basis of trust among our investors, customers and employees have been created. For me, this is the ideal time to hand over my position and take on a new challenge,” Leminsky said.

Ernst-Moritz Lipp, chair of Grenke’s supervisory board, said: “During her long tenure, she was highly instrumental in driving our profitable growth and developing new markets, as well as in Grenke’s digitalisation. Our special appreciation goes to her devoted commitment to fending off the short-seller attack. The recently published business figures underscore her successful work," he added.

Bücker was born in 1962 and holds a master’s degree in business administration, and was most recently a member of the board of management at Bayerische Landesbank.
