Stephan Weil
Hannover, Germany
Hannover’s Lord Mayor, Stephan Weil, has been named the new chairman of the supervisory board of Hannover-based Deutsche Messe. Weil replaces former economics minister Walter Hirche. Hirche previously represented the state of Lower Saxony on the board but gave up the post after resigning from his ministerial position.

Lower Saxony’s new economics minister, Philip Rösler, will represent the state on the board together with state finance minister Hartmut Möllring and Justice Minister Bernd Busemann. Rösler was also appointed vice-chairman of the supervisory board.

Deutsche Messe bylaws dictate that the chairmanship of the supervisory board alternate every five years between a representative of the city of Hannover and a representative of the state.
