12 Oct 2018 | Press Release No. 26
In a secret election in Nürnberg the Board of the Federal Employment Agency (BA) has elected Daniel Terzenbach as regional chairman of BA. The board of directors will propose his election as chairman to the Federal Government.
In March 2019 Terzenbach is expected to succeed Raimund Becker, whose term as chairman of the BA will then expire.
Daniel Terzenbach was born on 7 November, 1980 in Freiensteinau. He studied social management in Dortmund.
His professional career at the BA commenced at the beginning of 2006 at job centre Märkischer Kreis. There he designed and managed strategic projects and contributed decisively to the development of local cooperations and cross-regional networks in the then newly created structures of the SGB II.
Since 2009, he has been responsible for the organisation and business policy of the BA at headquarters in a changing work environment and in particular for the strategy for the future potential of the qualified labour force. In October 2015, the board entrusted him with the important task of integrating the labour market for refugees, next to his tasks as a senior manager in corporate management. Since 2017 he has been a managing director at the headquarters of the Federal Employment Agency and responsible for the area "Quality - Implementation - Consulting".
He is married and has one child.
Peter Clever, Chairman of the Administrative Board, says about the election of Wahl Terzenbachs: "With Daniel Terzenbach, the choice falls on a versatile and successful employee of the BA. It is therefore also a signal to the workforce as a whole, that with appropriate exertion the way to the top within the organisation is not just a theoretical possibility".
Annelie Buntenbach, alternate chair of the board of directors, added: “We are very grateful to board member Raimund Becker for his valuable contribution and the work he carried out and his many years of commitment to the Federal Employment Agency. He played a leading role in transforming the BA into a modern service provider and made lasting contributions to this end."
