FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Thyssenkrupp <TKAG.DE> is likely to appoint company veteran Peter Walker to succeed Andreas Schierenbeck as the chief executive of its elevators unit, two people familiar with the matter told Reuters on Tuesday.
No official decision has been made and other candidates could still be considered for the position, the people added. Sources on Monday said that Schierenbeck would be replaced.
Thyssenkrupp declined to comment. Schierenbeck and Walker, who became chief operating officer of the elevator unit in February, could not immediately be reached for comment.
