Vonovia chairman resigns for health reasons

FRANKFURT, Aug 26 (Reuters) - German real estate group Vonovia said its supervisory board Chairman Wulf Bernotat was resigning with immediate effect for health reasons.

Until the supervisory board elects a new chairman, deputy chairman Edgar Ernst will assume Bernotat’s responsibilities, it said in a statement on Saturday.

It aims to fill the vacancy on the supervisory board in elections at the next annual general meeting in May 2018, it said.

Bernotat, a former chief executive of utility E.ON , has chaired the supervisory board since June 2013, just before the group floated on the stock exchange. (Reporting by Maria Sheahan; editing by Erik Kirschbaum)
