The Supervisory Board of KWS SAAT AG made two personnel decisions at its meeting on March 14, 2012.

The contract of employment with Philip von dem Bussche, Chief Executive Officer of KWS SAAT AG, will be extended until the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting in December 2014 and thus until he is nearly 65.

On the other hand, Christoph Amberger (55), who has been responsible for Corn, Cereals and Marketing on the Executive Board since 2001, will not extend his contract when it expires on June 30, 2013, for personal reasons. The Supervisory Board regrets but respects his decision. KWS also announced that both parties will consider working together on selected projects.

It is planned that Executive Board member Hagen Duenbostel will take charge of Corn effective July 1, 2013. The position of his current area of responsibility Finance, Controlling and IT will be reassigned. Philip von dem Bussche will assume responsibility for Cereals and Marketing.
