Messe Friedrichshafen, host of the sports shows OutDoor, Eurobike and Interboot, announces major changes in its management, following the departure of its former two joint managing directors. Jürgen Schmid, who was not involved in the sporting goods trade shows, left the fair on Lake Constance by the end of 2006. The other managing director, Rolf Mohne, formerly project manager of the OutDoor show, retired at the end of March. The sole managing director is now Klaus Wellmann, who came to Friedrichshafen last year. He was hired away from Koelnmesse, the Cologne trade fair center, where he acted as project manager of IFMA and SPOGA, the local bike and camping shows. Wellmann will be supported by a newly created board of directors that consists of the business unit managers already in place including Dirk Kreidenweiss, in charge of Interboot, and Stefan Reisinger, in charge of OutDoor and Eurobike.
