Falk Senger, Monika Dech and Gerhard Gerritzen will leave the Board of Management of Messe München GmbH either on July 01 or August 01, 2021. The company’s shareholders and Supervisory Board thank these three executives for their long and successful work at Messe München. Falk Senger and Monika Dech will remain with the company and assume other managerial positions.
The dramatic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has required Messe München to reorganize the company and reduce the size of its six-member Board of Management. The company’s shareholders have placed managerial responsibility in the hands of Klaus Dittrich, Dr. Reinhard Pfeiffer, and Stefan Rummel.
The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has created enormous challenges for the trade fair industry. In the wake of the dramatic plunge in revenue and the long-term changes caused by the pandemic, Messe München GmbH (MMG) has been forced to take a comprehensive range of steps to safeguard the company’s future. As part of this process, the company has systematically reshaped its business model, expanded its digital formats, and intensified its focus on customers.
At the same time, the company is restructuring its organization with the aim of increasing its agility, flexibility, and efficiency.
In light of these developments, the company’s shareholders have decided to reduce the number of members on Messe München’s Board of Management by half. Falk Senger and Monika Dech will leave the Board of Management on July 01, 2021. They will then return to their previous positions as authorized signatories and department heads. They will remain members of the company’s management. Gerhard Gerritzen will retire on August 01.
As of July 01, 2021, the company’s Board of Management will be composed of Klaus Dittrich, Chairman and CEO, Dr. Reinhard Pfeiffer, Deputy Chairman of the Board, and Stefan Rummel.
