Changes in Board of Management of SGL Carbon SE

SGL Group – The Carbon Company – will implement a transition in the Group’s top management as of January 1, 2014. This was resolved at the meeting of the Supervisory Board. Effective this date, Robert Koehler, who will reach the age of 65 in January 2014, will leave the Company after handing over his position as CEO of SGL Carbon SE to his colleague on the Board of Management Dr. Jürgen Köhler. Dr. Köhler has been working for SGL Group in various management positions since 2002 and has been a full member of the Board of Management since June 1, 2013.

In the context of the generation change entailed by this decision and the measures to streamline the Group’s organizational structures announced within the framework of the Group-wide cost savings program “SGL2015”, there will be a further change in the Group’s Board of Management with the objective to reduce the number of Management Board members from the current five to three members. In addition to Dr. Jürgen Köhler assuming the position of CEO, the current Board of Management member Armin Bruch will resign by mutual agreement and leave the Company at the end of the year. Theodore H. Breyer had left the Board of Management at the age of 65 already on October 31, 2013. After these changes are implemented, the Board of Management of SGL Carbon SE will consist of three members effective January 1, 2014: Dr. Jürgen Köhler (CEO), Jürgen Muth (CFO) and Dr. Gerd Wingefeld.
