WestLB to merge corporate comms and IR

Düsseldorf-based regional bank WestLB is to merge its corporate communications and investor relations. Hans Obermeier has been appointed to manage the new division from April.

Obermeier, currently editor in chief for Germany for Reuters in Frankfurt, will report directly to board chairman Thomas R. Fischer. His current position will be made redundant when Reuters in Germany loses its independence and becomes part of a group with Austria and Switzerland.

IR was previously handled by the financial division of WestLB, while corporate communications have been managed by Claudie aVogl-Mühlhaus since January.
