Dr. Robert Mayr to Remain Head of DATEV eG for Five More Years

DATEV's supervisory board agreed to extend its contract with chairman of the executive board Dr. Robert Mayr until 2024.

Important milestone of Mayr's term in office was the "DATEV 2025" strategy in cooperation with the supervisory board and executive committee as well as the amendment to the statutes on 28 June 2018, allowing DATEV to offer products and services for roughly 13 million taxable persons in Germany.

"During his two years in office Robert Mayr has proved that he is well able to lead our cooperative successfully into the future. For his unfailing effort to prepare entrepreneurs as well as the tax consulting profession and its clients – especially small and medium-sized companies – in time for the digital transformation, the supervisory board gave him its explicit consent," said Nicolas Hofmann, head of the supervisory board.

Dr. Mayr, who came into office on 1 April 2016, was pleased with this decision. "Acceptance and acknowledgement of both my work as well as DATEV as a whole makes me proud and joyful," said the chairman of the executive board.
