KG) and Philipp Maurer (Panasonic Germany), who also assumes the function of Chairman of the Supervisory Board, were elected unanimously.

“As part of the regular gfu Supervisory Board election, three experienced and excellently networked managers from the consumer electronics and home appliances industries were elected to the board. I look forward to working with the new Supervisory Board and thank you for your willingness to hold this honorary office at gfu. At the same time, I would like to thank Volker Klodwig, the outgoing Chairman of the gfu Supervisory Board.
