Press release – komuno is growing – Susan Niederhöfer hands over baton to Thomas Eitenmüller

Susan Niederhöfer, Managing Director of komuno, the digital platform for municipal loans, is on maternity leave from July 2020. With mixed emotions, she hands over her tasks to Thomas Eitenmüller: "Thomas is the ideal successor." says Susan Niederhöfer. "We worked well together for many years before the komuno foundation and I am sure that he will continue to take komuno on its growth trajectory. The foundation of komuno GmbH and its expansion into one of the most important municipal credit platforms in Germany was for me the most exciting and intensive phase of my career. Now I'm looking forward to the next chapter."
