Thyssenkrupp names finance chief Kerkhoff as interim CEO

FRANKFURT, July 13 (Reuters) - Thyssenkrupp named Chief Financial Officer Guido Kerhoff on Friday as interim CEO while the supervisory board searches for a replacement for Heinrich Hiesinger, who resigned a week ago.

Hiesinger quit after failing to win unanimous shareholder backing for a deal to create a steel joint venture with India’s Tata Steel, while activist investors are campaigning for a radical restructuring of the industrial group. (Reporting by Douglas Busvine Editing by Maria Sheahan)
