Zur Rose Group nominates Rongrong Hu as director

The Board of Directors of the Zur Rose Group has decided to propose Rongrong Hu for election as a new member at the General Meeting of Shareholders on 28 April 2022. Rongrong Hu, a 41-year-old Chinese national, has been living in Switzerland since 2016 and is an investor focusing on the technology sector. Previously she worked for eBay as Senior Director of Innovation, M&A & Business Development EMEA and Chief Strategy Officer Greater China. Before that she worked for McKinsey & Company, CITIC Capital and was the founder of various businesses. Rongrong Hu graduated with a dual Bachelor's Degree in Telecommunication Engineering and International Economics & Trading from Shanghai Jiaotong University and holds an MBA from Harvard Business School. Chairman of the Board Prof. Stefan Feuerstein said: "We are delighted to have been able to persuade Rongrong Hu to stand for our board. As a proven expert in e-commerce and technology with broad business experience, she is an ideal addition."

The Board of Directors will have a further female member as a result of the nomination of Rongrong Hu, and following the previously announced departures of Dr. Thomas Schneider and Prof. Dr. Volker Amelung at the next General Meeting of Shareholders it will shrink from seven to six members. With the election of Rongrong Hu, the Board's announced target of achieving at least 30 per cent female members by 2023 will be reached a year ahead of schedule.
