Holger Bröskamp (60) will retire at the end of April 2018 after 15 years in the management of GNS. Bröskamp was spokesman of the GNS Board of Managing Directors from March 2003 to September 2011, since then he has been its deputy chairman.
"During his one and a half decades at the head of GNS, Holger Bröskamp has always given equal priority to safe disposal and the well-being of our employees," says Dr. Hannes Wimmer, Chairman of the Management Board of GNS, in praise of his colleague who is leaving the company. "With these principles, he has had a lasting influence on GNS and laid the foundations for our success today."
GNS Supervisory Board Chairman Dr. Guido Knott adds: "Holger Bröskamp enjoys an excellent reputation in all decisive waste disposal issues in politics, among experts and among domestic and foreign GNS customers. In a tense period between phase-out of nuclear energy, the extension of its operating life and the second phase-out decision, he made a decisive contribution to objectifying the debates. On behalf of all GNS shareholders and the Supervisory Board, I would like to thank Mr. Bröskamp for his outstanding commitment".
Of the activities Holger Bröskamp was most recently responsible for, Dr. Hannes Wimmer has taken over waste management and the retrieval of residues from reprocessing, while Managing Director Dr. Jens Schröder is now responsible for spent fuel management.
The operation of the interim storage facilities in Ahaus and Gorleben, which were also under Bröskamp's responsibility, was already taken over by the federal government last year as part of the reorganization of nuclear waste management in Germany.
The Board of Management Directors of GNS now consists of Dr. Hannes Wimmer (CEO), Dr. Jens Schröder (CTO) and Georg Büth (CFO).
