FCB Supervisory Board extends Dreesen's contract through 2023
The highly successful cooperation between FC Bayern München and Jan-Christian Dreesen, initially dating from 2013, is to continue over the long term. The contract with the 50-year-old FC Bayern München AG Chief Financial Officer and deputy chairman, which would have expired in mid-2018, was extended by five years through 2023 at yesterday's supervisory board meeting in Munich.
"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," said Dreesen, whose responsibilities include 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 München AG's subsidiaries.
Dreesen has been a member of the German Football League (DFL) steering committee and licensing body since 2016. Following the contract extension, FC Bayern München AG supervisory board chairman and FC Bayern München eV president Uli Hoeneß commented: "I'm pleased we've secured the services of Jan-Christian Dreesen, an outstanding expert, over the long term. 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."
