I wish him all the best at Oakley and I am very pleased that he will surely stay attached to ProSiebenSat.1 in his new role. Our new CFO Jan Kemper will assume his responsibilities and I am convinced that he will successfully pursue ProSiebenSat.1’s acquisition strategy together with our excellent M&A team under the direction of Florian Tappeiner."  Dr. Werner Brandt, Supervisory Board Chairman of ProSiebenSat.1 Media SE: “I would like to thank Ralf Schremper sincerely for his great dedication over the last seven years. He was responsible for key transactions at ProSiebenSat.1, including the sale of the non-German-speaking broadcasting activities and major digital investments such as Verivox. He has therefore contributed a lot to the Company’s transformation. I wish Ralf Schremper the very best of success in his new role.” Dr. Ralf Schremper: “ProSiebenSat.1 is a great and dynamic company that offers a lot of opportunities. Therefore, my special thanks goes to Thomas Ebeling, who has brought me into the Group and has always put me on new challenges. The M&A success would not have been possible without the outstanding commitment of my team, so I would also like to thank them very much. I wish Florian Tappeiner and the team all the best in continuing the acquisition strategy.” Since 2010, Dr. Ralf Schremper has been responsible for the Mergers & Acquisitions department at ProSiebenSat.1 as Executive Vice President.
