A family entrepreneur strengthens a family business: Anna Maria Braun (39), designated CEO of the medical technology group B. Braun Melsungen, joined the Oetker Advisory Board on 10 December with immediate effect. There, the former business lawyer replaces Lufthansa CEO Carsten Spohr, who resigned his mandate two and a half months ago because he felt redundant after the sale of the Hamburg-Süd shipping company.
The last year for August Oetker as head of the advisory board
Anna Maria Braun, who belongs to the sixth generation of the family business, is currently responsible for the Asia/Pacific region on the B. Braun Executive Board and will take over as CEO from Heinz-Walter Große (65) in April. In the Oetker Advisory Board, the mother of three meets among others the former Otto boss Hans-Otto Schrader and the coffee heir Andreas Jacobs, who made headlines this week because of the failed adoption by Albert Darboven. The head of the committee is the founder’s great-grandson August Oetker (74), who will retire at the end of next year.
