NürnbergMesse: Contracts of both CEOs extended

6. July 2021

At its summer meeting, the supervisory board of NürnbergMesse unanimously approved the extension of the contracts of Dr Roland Fleck and Peter Ottmann as managing directors of NürnbergMesse. The body, which is chaired by the Chairman of the Supervisory Board, Bavarian State Ministry of Finance and Regional Identity Albert Füracker, and the Vice Chairman of the Supervisory Board, Nuremberg's Lord Mayor Marcus König, thus continues to place its trust in the proven dual leadership and at the same time ensures continuity in the management of one of Germany's largest exhibition companies.

Chairman of the Supervisory Board Albert Füracker: "Dr Roland Fleck and Peter Ottmann have driven the extremely positive corporate development and impressive growth of NürnbergMesse over the past 10 years. With the extension of their contracts, the tandem can continue their successful work with full force even in the most difficult phase of the company's history due to Corona. The task now is to make the company fit for the upcoming challenges in the exhibition industry."

Vice Chairman of the Supervisory Board Marcus König: "There are major challenges for the trade fair and congress business now and in the future. As Vice Chairman of the Supervisory Board, I am pleased that with Roland Fleck and Peter Ottmann we have two outstanding CEOs and industry personalities still on board."

Dr Roland Fleck and Peter Ottmann have formed the Management Board of NürnbergMesse GmbH since 2011. Since then, they have led the company into the international top 15 of exhibition companies.
