“His experience and competence will help us enormously”: Rummenigge appointed to Bayern supervisory board
After the separation of CEO Oliver Kahn and sports director Hasan Salihamidzic, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge should be more involved at FC Bayern Munich – and got a seat on the supervisory board.
As announced, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge is a new member of the FC Bayern Supervisory Board. The former CEO was appointed to the board at the regular meeting of FC Bayern München AG’s general meeting on Tuesday.
Rummenigge thanks you for your trust
“We are happy to have Karl-Heinz Rummenigge as a member of our supervisory board,” said the chairman of the supervisory board, Herbert Hainer, in a club statement. “He is one of the great personalities in the history of our club, everyone knows his merits. His experience, his expertise and his international network will help us enormously so that FC Bayern can continue to be successful in the future.”
Rummenigge should be more involved with the German champions after the separation of CEO Oliver Kahn and sports director Hasan Salihamidzic. “I would like to thank the supervisory board for their trust and look forward to supporting FC Bayern in this body in the future. I was very fortunate and honored to celebrate many successes with this club, so I am happy to comply with the request of the supervisory board “said the 67-year-old Rummenigge.
The now nine-strong Supervisory Board also includes Honorary President Uli Hoeneß. The 71-year-old Hoeneß led the club for a long time together with Rummenigge, who was CEO for almost two decades. The triple wins in 2013 and 2020 fell during his tenure. Two years ago, Rummenigge vacated his post prematurely for successor Kahn.
