FRANKFURT, April 11 (Reuters) – The supervisory board chairman of Commerzbank on Thursday decried news reports of the board’s dissatisfaction with the bank’s chief executive officer.

“Rumors and speculation on personnel changes are made up out of thin air,” the bank’s chairman Stefan Schmittmann said in a statement emailed to Reuters.

“Such allegations are irresponsible and unworthy of discussion,” he said.
