Jan 10 (Reuters) - Wirecard AG Chairman Wulf Matthias, 75, resigned from his position due to personal reasons, the German payments company said on Friday.
Thomas Eichelmann, a member of the supervisory board, has been elected to replace him, Wirecard said in a statement.
Matthias, who joined as chairman in 2008, will remain a member of the board, the company added.
German daily Handelsblatt reported last year Matthias would not stand for a second term for age reasons. (Reporting by Bhargav Acharya in Bengaluru; Editing by Aditya Soni)
