Member of the Supervisory Board of the Week: Anke Schäferkordt (Serviceplan)

Anke Schäferkordt

Former RTL director Anke Schäferkordt has moved into the newly founded supervisory board of the advertising agency Serviceplan. Chairman of the three-member committee is co-founder Peter Haller, who has resigned from the management board. In addition, Sybille Stempel, daughter of co-founder Rolf Stempel, has assumed a mandate. As the largest owner-managed communications agency in Europe, the Serviceplan Group “occupies a special position in the rapidly changing agency industry”, Schäferkordt commented on its commitment. She is pleased to be “on board in these important times of change”.

Second Supervisory Board mandate besides BASF

Serviceplan consists of around 40 specialist agencies with 400 employees and an annual turnover of more than 400 million euros. The holding company has just been converted from a GmbH & Co KG into an SE & Co KG, which is supposed to take account of the internationalisation and may have triggered the establishment of a supervisory body. This is the second Supervisory Board mandate for 56-year-old Anke Schäferkordt, who has been supervising the chemical giant BASF since 2010.
