  • Dr. Daniela Feuchtinger

    Daniela Feuchtinger

    Dr Daniela Feuchtinger received her PhD within the framework of an interdisciplinary research project set up by the Federal Ministry for Education and Research at a Chair of Business Administration focusing on organisation and human resources. In 1996, she began her post-academic career with Munich Re as a Human Resources Officer. In 1999 she changed to MEAG during its foundation phase and played a major role in forming its Human Resources Department. 

    After returning to Munich Re in 2001, she took responsibility for the HR business partners. Since 2004, she has headed the Department of Human Resources Development at Munich Re in Munich, which she has developed into a global centre of excellence for Talent Management. As head of Global Talent Management between 2008 and 2016, she was also responsible in 2013 for Talent Management at the Princeton location.

    In her opinion, the Foundation is an important driver and motor behind the anchoring of humanity and social responsibility as central elements of professional life at Munich Re.

  • Dr. Michael Menhart

    Dr. Michael Mehnart

    Dr. Michael Menhart has been the Munich Re Group’s Chief Economist since 2007. In this role, he is responsible for the topic areas of national and international economics, economic policy, and research on insurance markets and future trends, among others.

    Since 2017, Dr. Menhart has also been head of the Central Division Economics, Sustainability & Public Affairs at Munich Re. 

    Before moving to Munich Re in 2005, Dr. Menhart was a business consultant at McKinsey & Company, where he advised global companies operating in the financial and insurance sectors on strategic projects.

    For Michael Menhart, corporate volunteering means taking on responsibility and enabling action for a sustainable society – both locally and globally.

In her current position, Ms Prange is responsible for developing and refining Munich Re’s core content and messages, with the aim of driving forward business and corporate strategies. She ensures that strategic communication concepts support the overall communication of corporate strategy both internally and externally.

    She has worked in a range of functions at Munich Re since 2002. After starting as a consultant for organisation development, in 2008 she switched to the Strategy Development department, where she was responsible for a range of projects aimed at reviewing and modifying Munich Re’s business strategies. She also led projects on due diligence and post-merger integration. In 2015, she then moved to the Group HR department as Group HR Manager. This role in the CEO Division is responsible for identifying and developing candidates as part of succession planning for managers at the top executive level within the Munich Re Group.

    After completing a degree in economics and an executive MBA, she began her career at an international management consultancy, focusing on process and strategy consulting.
