Nikola Steinbock to be new member of the Management Board at Rentenbank

10 July 2020

Frankfurt. At a meeting in Frankfurt am Main, Rentenbank’s Supervisory Board appointed Nikola Steinbock (51) as a new member of the Management Board.

She will be responsible for Promotional Business and Treasury as a divisional board member at Rentenbank from 1 August 2020 and as a fully-fledged board member from 1 February 2022.

Ms Steinbock began her career at Commerzbank in 1993 as a trainee in corporate banking. After having held various executive positions at Commerzbank, she most recently headed up corporate banking in Brandenburg and Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.

The Supervisory Board at Germany’s development agency for agribusiness and rural areas is especially pleased that Dr Horst Reinhardt, Chairman of the Management Board, has agreed to stay on in his role until the end of 2021 in order to best manage the forthcoming transition.

‘In Ms Steinbock, Rentenbank has acquired a highly qualified expert with many years of experience in banking, who is well placed to offer us valuable stimulus to further develop our promotional and distribution activities. In addition, we would like to thank Dr Reinhardt very much for providing us with his expertise and experience for another year,’ said Joachim Rukwied, Chairman of the Supervisory Board at Rentenbank.
