Changes to the executive board of Schörghuber Stiftung & Co. Holding

Munich, 27 March 2009. “This was not an easy step for me to take. However, having brought the reorganization of the corporate group’s structures, in particular in thefinancial division, to a successful close and after the death of Mr. Stefan Schörghuber, I feel that now is the time for me to pursue new challenges”, says Hans-Peter Hoh with regard to his decision.

Hans-Peter Hoh joined the Schörghuber Corporate Group in August 2001. After holding a number of different positions in the Beverages division and in the holding, he was managing director of business operations at Bayerische Bau und Immobilien GmbH & Co. KG and Bayerische Hausbau GmbH from 2005 to 2007, where he was instrumental in strategically realigning what had previously been two separate construction and real estate divisions.

Hans-Peter Hoh was appointed to the executive board of Schörghuber Stiftung & Co. Holding KG in May 2006. Until the end of 2008, he was responsible for managing the Finance executive division (corporate centers for controlling, finances, corporate accounting, legal affairs and auditing) and, together with the owner and chairman of the executive board, Stefan Schörghuber, was responsible for overall management of the corporate group.

Following the death of the company’s owner, Hans-Peter Hoh assumed responsibility for the Beverages division within the executive board. In addition to his function as a member of the executive board, he was also responsible for managing Brau Holding International GmbH & Co. KGaA from September 2008. As CEO he played an important role in setting the course for the company’s strategic realignment and further development as the largest network of regional breweries in southern Germany. He paid particular attention to the collaboration with the joint venture partner Heineken, making a great effort to ensure a good working relationship based on trust.

The executive board and the foundation board would like to thank Hans-Peter Hoh for all he has done for the company. “In the years that he has been part of the Schörghuber Corporate Group, Hans-Peter Hoh has made a valuable contribution to the company in a number of different positions. With a high level of personal commitment and together with my husband in the holding, he pressed ahead with the further professionalization and structuring of the company. I would like to thank him sincerely for all he has done”, says the chairwoman of the foundation board, Alexandra Schörghuber.
