At this Friday’s Annual General Meeting, the shareholders of the Baden-Württemberg arms manufacturer Heckler & Koch are to elect Harald Kujat to the three-member Supervisory Board. The 77-year-old is expected to take over the chairmanship of the committee and thus replace the former bomber manager Dieter John. According to a “Welt” report, retired Air Force General Kujat, who served as General Inspector of the Bundeswehr from 2000 to 2002, was proposed by Heckler & Koch’s major shareholder Andreas Heeschen.
Sorg von Binz & Partner comes for Arntz
Following the surprising resignation of financial expert Jean-Christoph Arntz three months ago, Martin Heiner Sorg is also standing for election. The auditor and partner of the law firm Binz & Partner had already been appointed by the Stuttgart District Court at the end of April. Nicolaus Bocklandt, Vice Chairman of the Supervisory Board and member of the Board of Directors of the Luxembourg financial services provider Arkus, is expected to remain on board.
