Clara C. Streit to take over as Chair of Vonovia’s Supervisory Board in 2023

Bochum, 8 December 2022 – Following the AGM on 17 May 2023, the Supervisory Board of Vonovia SE intends to appoint Clara C. Streit – subject to her re-election – as Chair of the company’s Supervisory Board. This was decided unanimously by the Supervisory Board at its ordinary meeting today. Clara C. Streit will be taking over from Jürgen Fitschen who decided in November not to stand for re-election, due to Vonovia’s age limit of 75.

Clara C. Streit (53) has been a member of Vonovia's Supervisory Board since June 2013 and has chaired the Finance Committee and been a member of the Executive and Nomination Committee since that time.

Jürgen Fitschen, Chair of the Supervisory Board of Vonovia SE, says: “I’ll be passing on my mandate on Vonovia’s Supervisory Board in the knowledge that, by proposing Clara C. Streit to our shareholders, we’ll be suggesting a successor who will continue this task with great commitment and in the interest of the company and all its stakeholders. She has detailed knowledge of Vonovia and can look back to many years of international experience on committees, with wide-ranging insights into other industries.”

Clara C. Streit says: “I am very pleased about the trust that has been placed in me by my colleagues in the Supervisory Board. This office comes with a great responsibility, as the way in which Vonovia meets the immense challenges in the housing market is relevant to cohesion in our society – challenges which include new construction, climate protection and demographic change.”

Today, Clara C. Streit is a supervisory board member and entrepreneur. She had previously worked as a consultant at McKinsey’s for many years and most recently as a Senior Partner. A graduate in business administration, she is a member of the Supervisory Board of Deutsche Börse AG, a member of the Board of Directors of Vontobel Holding AG in Switzerland and a member of the Board of Directors of Jerónimo Martins SGPS AG, a Portuguese consumer goods group.

The Annual General Meeting of Vonovia SE will be held virtually on 17 May 2023.
