Ralf Peter Gierig
Member of the Executive Board & Chief Financial Officer (Group CFO)
Ralf Peter Gierig has been Group Chief Financial Officer of ProSiebenSat.1 Media SE since January 1, 2022. In this role, he is responsible for Controlling, Accounting & Taxes, Shared Services, Treasury, Procurement & Real Estate and Corporate Security for the holding company and the Group's segments, among other things.
He assumed the Group CFO role on an interim basis from April to May 2017 as well as from April to June 2019. He was already appointed Deputy Group CFO as of October 2016 and was accordingly responsible for a wide range of financial areas within the Group.

In recent years, for example, the finance expert has been responsible for implementing a wide range of transactions for the Group on the capital market. These include, for example, the conversion of non-voting preference shares into ordinary voting shares in 2013, as a result of which ProSiebenSat.1 shares have been almost fully tradable on the stock exchange since then, and the successful transaction in the promissory note market in 2021. Responsible for financing the Group on the debt and equity markets, Gierig has set up ProSiebenSat.1's financing in a stable and long-term manner.
Ralf Peter Gierig studied in Bayreuth, Cologne and London. He graduated in economics in 1992 and began his professional career at Bayrische Hypotheken- und Wechselbank in Munich. There he was responsible for project financing in the media sector as well as MBO and LBO transactions. In 1996, he moved to the then ProSieben Media AG, and continued his career with the company after the merger of ProSieben and SAT.1 in 2000 in the new ProSiebenSat.1 Media AG.
