Gregor Pottmeyer is a finance and exchange executive who serves as a member of Deutsche Boerse's executive board and as chief financial officer. He has been on the board since 2009. He is under contract through 2022.
Media stories in August of 2017 listed Pottmeyer as a leading candidate to be named CEO to replace Carsten Kengeter. Pottmeyer was to lose his job as CFO should the now-failed proposed merger with the London Stock Exchange Group have gone through. LSE CFO David Warren was expected to get the combined entity CFO role.
Pottmeyer, born in 1962, spent his whole career prior to joining Deutsche Boerse in varying finance roles in the automotive industry, working for DaimlerChrysler Bank and Mercedes Benz Bank most recently. He joined Mercedes Benz in 1987.
At Mercedes Benz, Pottmeyer helped convert the car company's financing arm into a full bank.
The exchange extended his contract until 2022 in the wake of the failed merger with LSE in early 2017.
Pottmeyer has a graduate degree in business administration studies from Saarland University.
