Bilfinger reduces the size of its Executive Board

November 12, 2019

Beginning with the next financial year, the size of the Executive Board at industrial services provider Bilfinger will be reduced from four to three members. Michael Bernhardt will step down from the Executive Board on the best of terms and by mutual agreement as of December 31, 2019. His responsibilities, including his role as Labor Director, will be assumed by Chief Executive Officer Tom Blades.

“I would like to express my sincere thanks and respect for the work Michael Bernhardt has done”, says Dr. Eckhard Cordes, Chairman of the Supervisory Board at Bilfinger SE. “His achievements included the successful completion of the compliance monitorship, the professionalization of human resources activities – including the necessary IT restructurings – and his participation in the sale of the Building & Facility segment. The reallocation of Executive Board responsibilities in a more compact Executive Board team means that we are ideally positioned to deal with the challenges that lie ahead in our markets.”

Michael Bernhardt was appointed member of the Executive Board and Labor Director at Bilfinger SE November 1, 2015. He had previously held the same position at Bayer Material Science AG for four years.
