Carola Morgenstern-Meyer resigns as president of the dual leadership of the German Hockey Association
Carola Morgenstern-Meyer has announced her resignation as President of the German Hockey Association (DHB) with immediate effect. Morgenstein-Meyer informed the DHB Presidium of their decision last Monday. She has held the office of President since 2019 and has shared leadership with Henning Fastrich since 2021. Fastrich will lead the association as sole president with immediate effect. The rest of the presidency of the DHB remains unchanged.
In addition to her work at the DHB, Morgenstern-Meyer was Vice President of the European Hockey Association for many years and, after more than 30 years of voluntary work for the DHB, decided to resign from her position as President of the DHB.
On her resignation, Carola Morgenstern-Meyer said, “In difficult times we have taken important and successful steps to consolidate and realign the association. In the last few weeks, however, I have unfortunately no longer felt the unrestricted support for my voluntary work, either in the Federal Committee or in parts of the Executive Committee. However, this support is essential to bring the association further forward. It is, therefore, only logical for me to finish my work now. I am proud of what has been achieved and would like to expressly thank the many full-time employees and the entire hockey family. My intensive and good contacts to and close cooperation with the board members, directors of the DHB, trainers,
Henning Fastrich, co-president in the dual leadership: “We would like to thank Carola Morgenstern-Meyer for her extraordinary commitment in recent years and decades. The rest of the Executive Committee of the DHB will remain in its current composition and will continue to work on the future structure of the association within the framework of the coordinated strategies and projects.”
