Heike Wagner: new chair of the CMS Council
CMS announced a few days ago the appointment of Heike Wagner as chair of the CMS Council. This appointment will take effect on 1 October 2020, replacing Robert Bosman.
“During his 13-year tenure of the CMS Council, Robert has been a highly popular, diligent and inclusive Chair, supporting the strategy and the goals of CMS and contributing to our successful growth as a firm", said Pierre-Sebastien Thill, CMS Chairman. "I am very grateful to him for all the time and hard work that he has put into the role as a trusted advisor and a senior member of our management team. I am delighted that Heike has agreed to succeed Robert in the role of Chair".
Heike Wagner is a partner in the Corporate/M&A Group, based in Frankfurt. In her role as Chair, she will oversee the CMS Council that contributes to the firm's strategy, approves the organisation’s annual accounts and any governance-related changes as well as the admission of new member firms.
Wagner welcomed the appointment: “I am proud and honoured to succeed Robert Bosman as Chair of the CMS Council. Robert led CMS through exciting and challenging times and significantly contributed to the growth and the success of our firm. He has been a diligent, wise and well-respected colleague and friend who gained a deep knowledge of the CMS DNA through his 13 year tenure as Council Chair. It will not be easy to replace him. However, having been part of the CMS family for more than 20 years, I am delighted to be taking on the role and contributing to the next steps in the successful development of CMS".
