Diebold Nixdorf Announces Octavio Marquez Elected as Chairman

Diebold Nixdorf today announced that Octavio Marquez, president and chief executive officer, was elected chair of the company’s Board of Directors, effective Feb. 2, 2023. Marquez was appointed as Diebold Nixdorf president and CEO on March 11, 2022. Over the past year, he successfully led Diebold Nixdorf through streamlining the company’s operating model, bringing improved operational efficiency and cost savings, as well as leading the company through its recently closed refinancing transaction.

The Board determined that combining the roles of CEO, president and chairman under one leader enhances the alignment between ongoing strategic and operational matters, including focus on deleveraging and evaluating strategic opportunities to deliver value to shareholders. Independent director Arthur Anton, previously chair of the company’s Finance Committee and former CEO of Swagelok Inc., a global manufacturing company, was appointed as lead independent director of the Board.

Gary Greenfield, who joined the Board in 2014 and has served as non-executive chairman since 2018, led the Diebold Nixdorf Board of Directors during a number of transformational developments, including the delivery of essential services and solutions to global financial institutions and retailers during the COVID-19 pandemic. He will not stand for re-election as a director at the company’s annual shareholder meeting in 2023.

Greenfield stated, “Diebold Nixdorf plays an essential role in the global economy for financial institutions and retailers, and it was a great honor to serve as director over the past nine years. The company and the Board will be very well served by Octavio, Art and their fellow directors. I will continue to cheer for Diebold Nixdorf as a shareholder, and I look forward to watching the company’s success in the marketplace and around the world in the coming years.”

The Board also appointed Marjorie L. Bowen and Emanuel R. “Manny” Pearlman as directors of the company effective immediately. The Board also anticipates reducing the overall size of the Board at the upcoming annual shareholders’ meeting. As previously announced, Bowen and Pearlman bring substantial expertise and experience leading and guiding public and private companies, and will enhance the Board’s work as the company moves forward.
