Rupert Thiele was elected as a deputy board member at the 2021 General Assembly and took over the management of the department on a provisional basis following the departure of Andreas Heiermann in October 2022. Andreas Kuno, the assistant coach and the sporting director of the first team, was appointed deputy head of department and is therefore a new board member.
