His predecessor Frank Sennhenn leaves the Network Management Board after more than nine years and takes early retirement.
Berthold Huber, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of DB Netz AG: "On behalf of all my colleagues, I would like to express my sincere thanks to Frank Sennhenn for the good cooperation, which has always been based on trust. We wish him all the best for the coming period. At the same time, I am very pleased that we were able to win Philipp Nagl, a profound railway expert, as his successor. I am sure that DB Netz will benefit significantly from this generational change."
Nagl has been the Chief Production Officer at DB Fernverkehr AG since 2018. The Austrian has previously held various positions at DB Fernverkehr, including Head of Timetable and Traffic Management. In the meantime, he also worked for ÖBB's Corporate Development.
"I am very much looking forward to the new challenge. I am a railwayman through and through and want to inspire people for the railway - an efficient infrastructure is the core of this. That is what drives me, particularly in my new task," says the new Chairman of the Management Board Philipp Nagl.
