Supervisory Board Chairman Munsberg: "Appointing a COO is the last step in restructuring the Management Board.

As a result, the most senior management positions will have been filled in such a way so that Corestate is ideally positioned for the future."

Munsberg has words of thanks for the Management Board members stepping down: "It is with great regret that we complied with the wish expressed by Mr Hübener and Mr Löhken to end their employment relationships at Corestate for personal reasons. Mr Hübener has worked for our Group since April 2020 and has been responsible for the core Investment Management, Asset & Property Management and Research areas, which he has helped to advance and shape with tremendous personal dedication. Mr Löhken has worked for our Group since March 2018 and has been instrumental in forming the areas in his purview during that time with professionalism and tremendous personal commitment, including Human Resources, Legal, Compliance, Risk Management and ESG. On behalf of the entire Supervisory Board, I would like to thank Mr Hübener and Mr Löhken for a close and trusting working relationship and wish both of them all the best in their personal and professional endeavours."
