Executive Board

Thomas Posovatz

Responsible for Investor Relations, Communications, Finance, Accounting and Securities Settlement

After stints at Paul Berwein Börsenmakler AG and its successor, S.G. Warburg & Co., Thomas Posovatz joined forces with three colleagues to found his own firm. Beginning in 1993, Posovatz – a graduate in business administration – has been at the helm of MWB Wertpapierhandelshaus AG, ultimately leading it through its merger with Fairtrade Finance AG in 2008. That merger created one of Germany's largest order book management companies: mwb fairtrade Wertpapierhandelsbank AG. 

Franz Christian Kalischer

Responsible for Securities Trading, HR, Organisation and IT

Kalischer, a graduate in economics and banking, worked for Hamburg-based broker Rolf R. Warnholtz while still completing his studies. In 1995, as the founding partner and managing director of the first German brokerage company, he laid the foundation for what would later become Fairtrade Finance AG. In order to expand its reach beyond northern Germany, the company merged with MWB Wertpapierhandelsbank AG to form mwb fairtrade Wertpapierhandelsbank AG.

Kai Jordan

Responsible for Corporates & Markets

Until 1998 Jordan was deputy head of equity trading at Commerzbank Frankfurt and later departmental director Equity Capital Markets. Then he switched to the investment firm sector at a Frankfurt financial services provider and accompanied the development to a successful and diversified securities trading bank. In 2007 he was appointed to the board there. Jordan has been responsible for Corporates & Markets at mwb since August 2016.

Carsten Bokelmann

After completing his studies in business administration, the trained banker began his professional career at Mummert + Partner Unternehmensberatung AG. Carsten Bokelmann then moved to Steubing AG, where he took over the management of the internal audit department and was responsible for the implementation of regulatory issues. There he was appointed General Manager in July 2012 and was appointed to the Board in April 2015.
