Gerwig Koch Steps Down as Head of M&A at innogy

innogy SE has announced that Head of Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A), Gerwig Koch, will leave the company in the middle of next year. During his 15-year career with the company, the former investment banker and graduate in business administration,  among other things, helped shape and support the E.ON/RWE transaction phase. Prior to his function as Head of M&A, he helped innogy SE to a successful IPO. Numerous important decisions regarding partial sales and restructuring in the company's history have been made under his leadership. Uwe Tigges, CEO of innogy SE, commented on Koch's departure as follows:

“We very much regret that Gerwig Koch is leaving the company. Gerwig has played an enormous part in shaping the development of our company for many years – especially during the extremely difficult situation of the planned takeover and all challenges associated with it, his services to the company have been outstanding. In particular, I want to highlight innogy SE’s successful IPO in 2016 in this context, which was led and actively driven by Gerwig at RWE AG, laying the foundation for our company. In Gerwig, we are not just losing an outstanding M&A expert with unique specialist knowledge of the energy industry, but also a highly respected member of our leadership team and a person who has always acted as a role model, on both a professional and a personal level. Personally, and on behalf of the Management Board, I want to thank Gerwig for his valued commitment.”
