Eurex Clearing Supervisory Board appoints new Executive Board members 
In its meeting on 21 March 2013, the Supervisory Board of Eurex Clearing AG 
decided on the new composition of the Executive Board of Eurex Clearing.
Thomas
Book, who has been a member of the Eurex Clearing Executive Board since
March
2007, was appointed as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Eurex Clearing.
Newly
appointed to the Executive Board of Eurex Clearing were Heike Eckert (44)
as
Chief Operating Officer, Thomas Laux (39) as Chief Risk Officer and Eric
Müller
(39) for Treasury. Andreas Preuss and Jürg Spillmann will continue as
Executive
Board members of Eurex Clearing. 
Given Eurex Clearing’s status as a bank-licensed entity and as a reflection
of
the continued importance of central counterparties for the stability and
integrity of the financial markets, the Supervisory Board determined that
the
Executive Board of Eurex Clearing would be further strengthened by the
addition
of board members who have senior management responsibility for the strategy
and
day-to-day operations of Eurex Clearing. 
Along with the board’s reconstitution, Gary Katz, Michael Peters and Peter
Reitz will resign from the Executive Board of Eurex Clearing but will,
together
with Andreas Preuss, Thomas Book and Jürg Spillmann, continue their
mandates as
Executive Board members of Eurex Frankfurt AG and Eurex Zürich AG, the
parent
companies of Eurex Clearing. 
The effective date for the new Eurex Clearing governance structure will be
1
April 2013.
