Contract extension for Transnet BW CEO Dr Werner Götz
STUTTGART, Germany – The Supervisory Board of TransnetBW has reappointed Dr Werner Götz as Chairman of the Executive Board. Götz has been a member of the Executive Board since 2015 and held its Chairmanship since 2017. The contract extension provides for a five-year term, meaning that Götz will remain at the helm of the Baden-Württemberg transmission system operator until 2025.
“TransnetBW will be implementing major energy transition projects in the years ahead,” said Dr Hans-Josef Zimmer, Chairman of the Supervisory Board and Chief Technology Officer of EnBW AG. “This calls for an experienced and determined manager like Werner Götz.” This continuity and industry expertise will also be crucial in light of the mounting challenges confronting TransnetBW’s core mission: to provide a secure power supply for individuals, families and businesses at all times.
