Messe München welcomes new Board of Management

Published on :Thursday, November 11, 2021

Reinhard Pfeiffer and Stefan Rummel will soon become co-heads of Messe München in mid-2022. In a recent meeting the company’s shareholders decided to reshape its Board of Management. The company’s shareholders unanimously decided at a recent meeting to appoint Reinhard Pfeiffer and Stefan Rummel as the co-heads of Messe München. It is expected that from July 1, 2022, both new executives will attain their new position and oversee the business operations of Messe München as sole and equal Managing Directors. At this point Klaus Dittrich, the current Chairman of the Board of Management, will leave the company as planned.

“Messe München is an international showcase for Bavaria,” said Hubert Aiwanger, the Bavarian Minister of Economic Affairs who serves as Chairman of the company’s Supervisory Board and the owners’ meeting. “For this reason, we are putting a new management team into place at an early stage.”

Both executives already oversee an extensive share of Messe München’s portfolio. “By further reducing the Board of Management, we are combining the company’s necessary restructuring and crisis management with continuity,” Aiwanger said. “The experienced trade fair managers Pfeiffer and Rummel are deeply rooted in the company and will complement each other perfectly as co-managing directors. This a good and important signal to employees and the business partners of the trade fair company.”

Dieter Reiter, the Lord Mayor of Munich who acts as the Deputy Chairman of the owners’ meeting and Supervisory Board, said: “The Board of Management of Messe München has written a tremendous success story in recent years. By selecting Reinhard Pfeiffer and Stefan Rummel as the new leaders, we are also honoring the successful work that the entire Board of Management performed before and during the pandemic. With the help of a small and decisive Board of Management, we are laying the foundation that will enable us to tackle an array of challenges that await us. Under the leadership of Reinhard Pfeiffer and Stefan Rummel, Messe München will be in the best-possible position to emerge from the crisis stronger than ever.”
