Uniper's Supervisory Board decided yesterday evening unanimously to appoint David Bryson (51) as a new member of the Board of Management as Chief Operating Officer of Uniper with effect from November 1, 2019. Eckhardt Rümmler will remain a member of the Board of Management until end of January 2020 and will ensure an orderly transfer of responsibilities to Mr. Bryson.

Dr. Bernhard Reutersberg, Chairman of Uniper's Supervisory Board: “I am very pleased that we have succeeded in driving forward the realignment of the Uniper Management Board and that our Board of Management has now been enriched with David Bryson, a very experienced and valued colleague from Uniper's workforce”.

Bryson, a Chartered Engineer who in 24 years with the British Army has successfully demonstrated his expertise in engineering and management, then worked for the E.ON Group for more than 10 years in various management positions, responsible for the successful management of the operational power plant business in Germany and abroad.
