Jenny Zeller will complete the board of Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe (BVG) from 2023. This was decided by the company’s guarantors’ meeting.
The guarantors’ meeting of Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe (BVG) appointed Jenny Zeller as a new member of the Executive Board for Human Resources and Social Affairs on 21 July 2022. It thus follows the recommendation of the Supervisory Board. Jenny Zeller completes the three-member executive board of BVG from the first quarter of 2023 and succeeds Dirk Schulte, who left the company at his own request in November last year. She is a proven mobility expert and has so far worked as Labour Director and Managing Director Human Resources for S-Bahn Berlin GmbH. From 2007 onwards, she was in charge of personnel development, change management and internal communication for several years. In 2012, she moved to the Infrastructure division. Two years later, she took over the management of the executive academy of Deutsche Bahn AG and was responsible for the qualification of executives across the group and for supporting transformation processes as part of the implementation of the group strategy.
Stephan Schwarz, Senator for Economic Affairs, Energy and Operations: “I am very pleased that with Jenny Zeller, an experienced expert in human resources and mobility has been recruited for Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe, who already knows public transport in our city very well. In view of the challenges of demographic change, advancing digitalisation and the associated transformation of the world of work, Ms Zeller is taking on an extremely important task that is also of central importance for the transport turnaround in our city. With her expertise and previous experience, Ms Zeller is particularly well suited for this task. I wish Ms Zeller every success in her new task and look forward to our cooperation.”
Jenny Zeller: “As a true Berliner, I am very pleased to be able to help shape the change in transport and thus the future of mobility in our city with a strong team in my new role in Germany’s largest local transport company. BVG stands for diversity and tolerance like hardly any other company – a strong team that we will continue to develop together in the coming years and make fit for the upcoming changes”.
