Roche to inform about plans for succession in autumn 2013…
Franz B. Humer, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Roche Group, announced at today’s Annual General Meeting that he will not stand for re-election to the Board in 2014. Roche will nominate a successor for the chairmanship in autumn 2013. The Roche Board has decided that Franz Humer’s successor will also serve as non-executive Chairman, thus maintaining the established separation of the offices of Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
Roche Chairman Franz B. Humer: “Roche is in excellent shape and well positioned to meet future challenges. This is a good time to hand over to a successor. I am looking forward to the next 12 months, and I intend to perform my duties as Chairman with enthusiasm and drive.”
