The Supervisory Board of ProCredit General Partner AG, the general partner of ProCredit Holding AG & Co. KGaA, has appointed Christian Dagrosa as a new member of the Management Board as of 1 January 2023. At the same time, the company announces that as planned Dr Gabriel Schor stepped down from the Management Board by mutual agreement upon expiry of his contract term on 31 December 2022.
Dr Gabriel Schor has been a member of the Management Board since 2004 and was most recently responsible, among other areas, for Finance, Investor Relations and Supervisory Reporting. Prior to this, Dr Gabriel Schor was Managing Director of Internationale Projekt Consult GmbH (IPC), one of the founding shareholders of ProCredit Holding.
Hubert Spechtenhauser, Chair of the Management Board of ProCredit General Partner AG, comments: “We are very grateful to Gabriel for the tremendous commitment he has made to the ProCredit group over the last three decades since its inception, and that he is prepared to continue his involvement with the group. Christian has been a valued member of the Management team for three years, and consequently his appointment to the Board at this time was a logical development.”
Christian Dagrosa (born 1987) has been working for the ProCredit group in various management positions since 2017. His previous professional positions include several years working for the auditing firm KPMG in Financial Services.
In his new function as Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of ProCredit Holding, Christian Dagrosa will be responsible in particular for Finance and Investor Relations.
“The ProCredit group has become a kind of second home for me over the past few years, so I am especially pleased about my new appointment. It is certain that economic and political integration between Western and Eastern Europe will accelerate in the coming years, and for Europe, the reconstruction of Ukraine is one of the many major tasks we will be facing in the future. I see ProCredit uniquely positioned to play an important role in addressing these challenges and am therefore optimistic about the short- and medium-term outlook for our group”, said Christian Dagrosa.
The ProCredit group would like to express its gratitude to Dr Gabriel Schor and wishes him all the best in the future.
