Top Executive BMW Faints on Stage
How unlucky can one man be. You give a presentation for the world press on one of the most important events for your industry and then you faint. It happened to BMW top man Harald Krüger.
Harald Krüger fainted at the beginning of his press conference during the car show in Frankfurt. The 49-year old Krüger was then led off stage by two assistants, supported but walking. It is yet unclear what was wrong with Krüger.
Krüger has only been BMW's leading man since May, so it was his first presentation as head of the organization at the important show in Frankfurt. The top executive, who was member of the board of BMW since 2008 and who was responsible for production, was the successor of Norbert Reithofer, who became chairman.
