Former Verdi boss Frank Bsirske is stepping down from the supervisory board of Essen energy group RWE. The 69-year-old announced it in an interview with Wirtschaftswoche. Bsirske is a candidate for the Bundestag in Wolfsburg and is on the Lower Saxony Greens list in 6th place, which is seen as promising. His tenure on the body would have expired a few weeks ago, the newspaper writes. However, due to the corona, the election of staff representatives was postponed twice. This election should be caught up in the coming days. “This ends my membership on the company’s supervisory board,” Bsirske said. Due to his candidacy for a term in the Bundestag, Bsirske also wants to step down from the supervisory board of Deutsche Bank. “The next Deutsche Bank board meeting will be my last,” he said. The longtime chairman of the services union Verdi has been a member of Deutsche Bank’s supervisory board since May 2013. His regular term is said to have run until the Annual General Meeting in 2023.
