Organized by Institutional Investor, WirtschaftsWoche and the German Investor Relations Association (DIRK), the ceremony for the award took place at an evening event in Frankfurt am Main as part of the DIRK annual conference. Companies are awarded annually in the categories DAX, MDAX and SDAX, as well as the best IR professionals in the respective indices.

The winners are determined following the results of Institutional Investor’s Developed Europe Executive Team Survey. Each year, the survey collects independent feedback on the IR work of listed companies worldwide, surveying thousands of buy- and sell-side professionals.

“The constant exchange with our shareholders is of major importance for us as well as a comprehensive and transparent communication towards the capital market,” says chief financial officer Dr Christian Danninger, who received the awards at the event together with Guido Pickert. “The German IR Award, both in the corporate category and for the outstanding performance of our VP IR Guido Pickert, is proof that our efforts here are not only noticed but also highly appreciated,” he adds.

“In a time of comprehensive change, investor relations plays a crucial role in shaping and communicating change. Whether it’s sustainability, digitalization or the current inflationary dynamics, outstanding IR professionals are significantly shaping these developments,” says managing director Kay Bommer. “Despite the challenging conditions, this year’s German IR Award winners have done excellent work. They are symbolic of all those IR professionals who drive the industry forward and serve as role models.”
