Supervisory Board Karl-Heinz Rummenigge sees a turning point at FC Bayern with the new CEO Jan-Christian Dreesen. The pre-predecessor of the new Munich boss sees it as a “paradigm shift” or “tribute to modern times that there is no former player at the top, but a financial expert,” as he said in kicker: “This is all of Europe custom.”
Nevertheless, Dreesen enjoys Rummenigge’s complete trust. Not just because he “did an excellent job here for ten years” as CFO, but because he “knows FC Bayern”. Dreesen is a “great guy” who “will also do great”. The 67-year-old emphasized that he “always had a loyal and trusting relationship” with him.
The numbers from his era as chief financial officer speak for Dreesen “anyway”, not least because of his work during the Corona period. “When all of Germany and of course football was suffering from the pandemic, he did an excellent job of keeping the club in the black despite all the difficulties,” said Rummenigge.
Dreesen (55) replaced Oliver Kahn in the course of the reorganization of the Bayern board at the end of the season.
