The supervisory board of Porsche AG has been reorganised. This was announced by the sports car manufacturer's supervisory body today. The reason for the conversion is the planned IPO of the company.
In addition to establishing the necessary new committees, the body has decided to reduce its Executive Committee by two to six members. In the future, the Supervisory Board will also include Micaela le Divelec Lemmi, Melissa Di Donato Roos and Hauke Stars on the shareholder side. On the other hand, Hiltrud Werner (already at the end of January 2022), Hans-Peter Porsche and Thomas Schmall left the supervisory body.
Arno Antlitz and Hauke Stars will also have a seat on the Supervisory Board's Executive Committee. In addition to the Chairman of the Supervisory Board, Dr. Wolfgang Porsche, other members of the Executive Committee are Jordana Vogiatzi, Harald Buck and Carsten Schumacher.
The Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Porsche AG, Dr. Wolfgang Porsche says: “The reorganisation of the supervisory board is related to the planned IPO. We are pleased that we were able to win three competent members. Micaela le Divilec Lemmi is a well-versed expert in the luxury goods industry. Melissa Di Donato Roos and Hauke Stars are experts in the technology industry. I am convinced that they will accompany the work of the Porsche supervisory board in a constructive and advisory capacity and will provide entrepreneurial impetus within the limits of their monitoring and advisory function.” In addition, Dr. Wolfgang Porsche thanked the departing members for their dedicated work on the Supervisory Board, some of which lasted many years.
Hauke Stars is a member of the Volkswagen Group Board of Management responsible for IT. From 2012 to 2020, Stars was a member of the executive board of Deutsche Börse. She holds also positions on various supervisory and advisory boards.
Micaela le Divelec Lemmi was until recently CEO of the Italian luxury label Salvatore Ferragamo, before that she was a long-time member of the executive board of Gucci. The Italian is currently a member of various supervisory boards, including a non-executive director on the board of the coffee machine manufacturer De Longhi.
Melissa Di Donato Roos has been Chief Executive Officer of the German software company Suse since 2019. Born in the US, she previously held various management positions at international technology companies such as IBM, Oracle and SAP.

*Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. As of 1 September 2018 the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) replaced the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel/electricity consumption and CO₂ emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC.
Currently we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, regardless of the type approval process used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary. As all new cars offered by Porsche are type approved in accordance with the WLTP, the NEDC values are therefore derived from the WLTP values. To the extent that the values are given as ranges, they do not relate to a single, individual car and are not part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicles. Optional equipment and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics and, along with weather and traffic conditions and individual handling, can affect the fuel/electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions, range and performance figures of a car.
You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Further information on the official fuel consumption and official, specific CO₂ emissions of new passenger cars is available in the “Guidelines on fuel consumption, CO₂ emissions and power consumption of new passenger cars” [Leitfaden über den Kraftstoffverbrauch, die CO₂-Emissionen und den Stromverbrauch neuer Personenkraftwagen], available free of charge from all sales outlets and from Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH (DAT).
