Willy Bogner, founder and main shareholder of the eponymous German fashion and sports apparel brand, is apparently preparing his succession. His 34-year-old daughter, Florinda Bogner, who holds a minority share in the company, has joined its supervisory board. Taking the place of Alexander Liegl, she will represent the interests of the Bogner family. She has just completed a traineeship in Munich, which saw her run through all of the company's departments. Prior to that she lived in the U.S., studied interior design, worked as a therapist and dressed up dogs. A lawyer, Klaus Volk, will take over as chairman of the supervisory board after Wolfgang Rietzle's relatively short stint in the role. Volk is well-known for defending a former chief executive of Deutsche Bank, Josef Ackermann, in a prominent case with Mannesmann in the mid-2000s. Bogner is still waiting for a reaction from the German tax authorities after they raided the company's offices in July on suspicion of tax evasion.
