CHG-MERIDIAN reorganizes Board of Management; Dr. Mathias Wagner to succeed
Jürgen Mossakowski

* Steadfast: Mossakowski to join the new Supervisory Board, Dr. Wagner to
become the new Chairman of the Board of Management
* Strong: Sales activities to be brought together in one remit
* Structured: Separate Board of Management remit for IT and Services

Weingarten, November 16, 2016

CHG-MERIDIAN AG's Chairman of the Board of Management, Jürgen Mossakowski,
is making changes to the Board of Management that will settle the question
of his successor at the head of this international technology-management
company and financial service provider. After more than 18 years as
Chairman of the Board of Management, the 56 year old is to join the
Company's Supervisory Board. Dr. Mathias Wagner, who is currently the Board
of Management member responsible for international sales, is to become the
new Chairman of the Board of Management of CHG-MERIDIAN, which employs more
than 1,000 people around the world. Other changes include bringing all
sales activities together in one remit and creating a separate Board of
Management role with responsibility for IT and services. Board of
Management responsibility for Finance remains unchanged.

Dr. Mathias Wagner (44) has already successfully demonstrated his wealth of
managerial experience. He has worked at CHG-MERIDIAN since 2013 and played
a key role in the Group's continued international growth and the increased
profitability of its foreign subsidiaries. Before joining the Board of
Management of CHG-MERIDIAN, Dr. Wagner previously held various
senior-management and board-level roles in the Fresenius Group.

All sales activities to be brought together in one remit

A further major change is that the sales function is to be brought together
under one Board of Management remit. Frank Kottmann (49), who is currently
the Board of Management member responsible for sales in Central Europe and
for all international service activities, will head up all sales activities
from 2017 onward. Kottmann will bring his extensive experience at
senior-management level in the IT industry to the role. In the past four
years at CHG-MERIDIAN, he has been very successful in developing the
CHG-MERIDIAN Group's traditionally strongest sales region and, going
forward, will also bring his experience to bear for the future success of
the business.

Newly established Board of Management remit for IT and services

A large and important structure is to be created for the service activities
at CHG-MERIDIAN. With effect from January 1, 2017, Oliver Schorer (45) will
join the Board of Management and take on the new IT and Services remit.
Further establishing and expanding the service business is of immense
strategic importance for CHG-MERIDIAN. Since 1999, Schorer has held a range
of managerial roles within the CHG-MERIDIAN Group, including that role of
the Chief Information Officer (CIO). As well as IT, he is currently
responsible for the design and delivery of services.

Continuity in the Finance division

Responsibility for the Finance and Administration divisions will remain
with Joachim Schulz (49), who has worked for the Company since 1996 and has
been CHG-MERIDIAN's Board of Management member with responsibility for
finance since 2007. This remit also includes the Group Treasury, in which
CHG-MERIDIAN currently funds technology investments totaling more than a
billion euros a year via almost 100 international funding partners.

Mossakowski: New management team will continue the success story

"I am very pleased that it is possible for us to implement a decision that
is important for the Company and for me in such a purposeful and structured
manner. I firmly believe that the new Board of Management will continue the
CHG-MERIDIAN success story that dates back more than thirty years," said
Mossakowski.

Frank Gelf, the son of the company's founder Jürgen Gelf, and today a major
co-shareholder and member of CHG-MERIDIAN's Supervisory Board, welcomed the
new composition of the Board of Management and Mossakowski's decision to
continue to support the Company as a Supervisory Board member. An
extraordinary general meeting will be held before the end of the year to
vote on the new composition of the Supervisory Board.
