Metro said in a statement that its three largest shareholders, Haniel, Schmidt-Ruthenbeck and Beisheim, supported the succession plan of Haniel, head of the family behind Metro's largest shareholder who will step down after the next annual general meeting in February.

Steinemann, who is leaving Barry Callebaut in August, will join the Metro supervisory board already in September, replacing Wulf Bernotat, who Metro said was resigning.
