FC Bayern Munich’s Supervisory Board has extended Bayern Chief Financial Officer and deputy chairman Jan-Christian Dreesen for another five years. Dreesen, who is 50 years old, had a contract that was set to run out mid-2018. The new contract will keep him at the club until 2023. The decision was made at yesterday’s supervisory board meeting in Munich.
Dreesen has a large number of responsibilities, including finance and bookkeeping, ticket services, security and facility management, IT, legal affairs, human resources, fan and fan club liaison as well as representation in FC Bayern’s subsidiaries. He had this to say about his new contract:
I’m very pleased I can help shape the path followed by FC Bayern, which has been so successful in terms of both finances and football, for another five years together with chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and my fellow board directors Andreas Jung and Jörg Wacker. I’d like to thank our entire supervisory board and chairman Uli Hoeneß for the faith placed in me.
Bayern Munich’s President Uli Hoeness commented that he was very pleased to have secured the services of Dreesen for the long term, adding that,
... the last five years have been very successful for FC Bayern, both financially and in terms of sport. Jan-Christian Dreesen has played an extremely important part in that. I’m glad we’ll continue this cooperation over the long term.
We can’t say we disagree. After all, can you argue with these results?
