    alt txt



    Rolf Wiswesser, member of the Board of Management in charge of sales, will be leaving ERGO Insurance Group by mutual agreement at the end of this year. His board appointment at ERGO Versicherungsgruppe AG will expire on 30 September. In order to ensure a smooth transition, Wiswesser will act in an advisory capacity until the end of the year. This decision was taken by the ERGO Supervisory Board today afternoon. The designated Chairman of the Board of Management at ERGO, Markus Rieß, will initially take over the sales division.

    Rolf Wiswesser (51) was appointed to the Board of Management of ERGO Versicherungsgruppe AG with responsibility for sales in 2011. During his term in office, sales underwent extensive reorganisation; at the beginning of 2014, the sales company ERGO Beratung und Vertrieb AG was founded, where Wiswesser has been Chairman of the Board. Wiswesser will also leave this company.

    Torsten Oletzky, Chairman of the Board of Management at ERGO, said: “On behalf of the Board of Management and the Supervisory Board at ERGO, I would like to sincerely thank Rolf Wiswesser for his service and high level of commitment. We wish him all the best for the future.”
