Due to the governance framework of her new employer, she will be required to step down from GAM’s Board of Directors with immediate effect. Tanja Weiher was elected to the Board in April 2013 and has served as a member of the Audit Committee and of the Governance and Nomination Committee.
The company will nominate a new candidate for election to the Board of Directors at its upcoming Annual General Meeting, scheduled for 27 April 2016.
Johannes A. de Gier, Chairman of the Board of Directors, said: “I have a great appreciation for Tanja Weiher’s contribution to the Board and her impact on our company’s evolution over the past three years. On behalf of the full Board of Directors, I would like to express my gratitude and, whilst we are pleased for Tanja that she has been offered this new opportunity, our sincere regret that she has been required to step down and will no longer be able to work with us.”
