Oliver Schumy steps down

Human resources
EUROPE Oliver Schumy, the CEO of Immofinanz, is stepping down from the management board.

The company claims that the premature termination of his contract is based on mutual agreement due to personal reasons.

“Oliver Schumy has made a valuable and lasting contribution to the successful repositioning of Immofinanz in the recent years,” says Michael Knap, the chairman of the supervisory board. “The termination of the contract is not related to the position of the company or possible effects of the covid-19 crisis on the business of Immofinanz,” he insists.

The leadership of Immofinanz is now to be taken over by Dietmar Reindl and Stefan Schönauer.
