Dr. Lorenz Zwingmann, Executive Board member responsible for Finance, IT, Controlling
and Processes at Knorr-Bremse AG, will not be renewing his contract when it terminates on
31.12.2017, in order to take up a new professional challenge in his North German homeland.
The Supervisory Board of Knorr-Bremse AG has taken note of Dr. Zwingmann‘s decision
with great regret. Dr. Zwingmann intends to fully meet his contractual obligations up
until the termination date. A decision on a successor will be made as rapidly as possible.
Dr. Zwingmann has been a member of the Executive Board of the Company since the end
of 2008, and from 2011 to mid-2013 was also the Executive Board spokesman. “The Supervisory
Board thanks Dr. Lorenz Zwingmann for his exceptional commitment to Knorr-
Bremse AG. Since he first joined the Board in 2008, he has made a crucial contribution to
the Company‘s successful growth and internationalization strategy. Dr. Zwingmann introduced efficient processes, continuously improved the Company’s financial, risk management and IT systems and ensured their viability for the future. We are extremely grateful to him for his outstanding contribution and regret the fact that he will no longer be available to the Company,” said Hans-Georg Härter, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Knorr-Bremse AG. Prior to leaving the company Dr. Zwingmann would prepare and support the transfer of his duties to a successor.
