Munich, July 22, 2011

At its most recent meeting, the Supervisory Board of DAB bank AG appointed Dr. Markus Gunter (44), previously DAB bank AG's Management Board member for the market, as Board Spokesman. "Over the past several years, Markus Gunter has decisively shaped the Bank - from the Bank's positioning and its market presence, to the product and service portfolio, to the daily business. He will continue to successfully guide the course of DAB bank AG," said Dr. Theodor Weimer, chairman of the Supervisory Board of DAB bank AG. In his new capacity, Markus Gunter will continue to be responsible for the B2B, B2C, Marketing, Products & Services and Human Resources divisions as well as Corporate Communications.

Dr. Niklas Dieterich (42) will be appointed as a Management Board Member effective September 1, 2011, succeeding Dr. Markus Walch, who will conclude his term of office on the Management Board on August 31, 2011, after four years and take on a new task as the Chairman of the Management Board of Deutsche WertpapierService Bank AG (dwpbank). In the future, Dr. Dieterich will be responsible at DAB bank AG for the Finance & Controlling, Operations and IT divisions, as well as the Risk Controlling & Compliance, Internal Audit, and Investor Relations departments.

Dr. Niklas Dieterich joined DAB bank AG on April 1, 2011, as the Head of Division for Finance & Controlling. From 2006 to 2001, he was the Head of Division and CFO for Operations & Credit Treasury at UniCredit Bank AG (HypoVereinsbank). Prior to that, Dieterich, an economist and doctor of laws, worked for the Booz Allen Hamilton management consulting firm starting in 1998, where he was a member of management since 2004, responsible for Retail Banking and Asset Management.

"In Dr. Niklas Dieterich, we have found a Management Board Member who already knows DAB bank AG very well and has achieved great recognition in a brief period. With his many years of experience as a proven financial expert in the CFO environment and the expertise he has developed in the Operations and IT divisions over the past few years, he brings with him the best of preparation for his new task. We wish him all be best for his work on the Management Board," said Dr. Theodor Weimer. "We thank Dr. Markus Walch for the very successful years that he has worked on the Management Board at DAB bank AG. Thanks in part to his excellent work on the Management Board, DAB bank AG was able to master the challenges of the financial market crisis in the best way. Even though I can understand his decision to take on a new challenge outside of our company, I very much regret his departure. In the name of the Supervisory Board, I wish him all the best and great success in his new task."

The Supervisory Board of DAB bank AG also decided today to reorganize the Supervisory Board offices at the subsidiaries subject to their election and appointment. Starting September 1, 2011, Dr. Niklas Dieterich is to take over the chairmanship of the Supervisory Board of SRQ FinanzPartner AG, Berlin, from Dr. Markus Walch. The other members remain the same, Markus Gunter as deputy chairman and Michael Vogel, a person of independent means, as a representative of the independent shareholders.
