Corporate Governance - Supervisory Board

Klaus F. Jaenecke supports global mid-sized companies as an elected member of the supervisory board. These multiple engagements are based on:

Since the first appointment as Supervisory Board member in 1997 and experience from a total of 14, he has dealt with almost every aspect of corporate governance. His training in business management and his professional involvement with corporate appraisal, financing and leadership skills converge perfectly in these engagements.


The chairing of committees requires efficient cooperation with other supervisory board members, managing boards, auditors and above all authority in the leading of shareholders’ meetings, especially of public corporations listed on the stock exchange. Each mandate is based on a generous time contingent to understand the business and allow for most competent judgement.


Intellectual and economic independence are prerequisites for effectiveness on the board of directors. This also allows for the strength to encounter distinct personalities and challenge existing issues.


Klaus F. Jaenecke deliberately places himself in the background, outside of the public eye, and pursues a clear value system. The assumption of corporate responsibility lies close to his heart with each new task. He lives by the legal provision that advisors do not conduct the business of a company and do not represent them in public.
