“The continuous successful development of our club in recent years, combined with major economic development steps, and the challenges ahead of us, such as the stadium construction, we would like to take into account in the Supervisory Board with the further expansion of competence and expertise. At the same time, we also want to take the first steps towards rejuvenating the Supervisory Board so that we can continue the successful work of recent years in the future. With Björn Böhning and Dr. Christoph Schulte, we are gaining two very competent and well-connected Union members for the supervisory body of our club, and we are particularly looking forward to their cooperation,” said Thomas Koch, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of 1.
