Supervisory Board of the week: Philipp Rösler (Brainloop)

Philipp Rösler

Brainloop, the IT and software company, announces a prominent new addition to its supervisory board: former Minister of Economics and Vice Chancellor Philipp Rösler has been a member of the supervisory board since the beginning of the month. The 47-year-old, who now lives with his family in Zurich, is thus continuing his path to the multi-supervisory board: Rösler already sits on the supervisory boards of Siemens Healthineers, the Finnish energy provider Fortum and the Vietnamese agricultural company Loc Troi Group. As a Brainloop supervisory board member, he wants to help the Munich-based company make its IT solutions better known – and thus “make a contribution to the digitization of small and medium-sized businesses,” the former FDP leader told Handelsblatt.

“Versatile and respected personality”

Even larger medium-sized companies have a lot of catching up to do in the area of IT security, Philipp Rösler continues. He is joined on the Brainloop supervisory board by three managers from the US IT company Diligent. CFO Michael Stanton is the chief controller. He is very pleased to welcome “such a versatile and respected personality” to the supervisory board, commented Stanton on the new addition. Diligent took over the Munich-based company, which offers confidential data rooms and communication channels, in 2018. Its customers include numerous Dax corporations.
