Change to the advisory board of the strategy and personnel consulting firm after six years as a partner
Munich, 21 January 2021: From January 2021, Wolfgang Holzhäuser will be Chairman of the Advisory Board of the strategy and HR consultancy SPORTHEADS (www.SPORTHEADS.de). He is thus simultaneously stepping down from his role as a long-standing partner at SPORTHEADS and leaving the operational management at his own request.
Since 2014, he has effectively supported the management consultancy SPORTHEADS and its predecessors with his unique experience and comprehensive expertise, and has been instrumental in its development into one of the leading consultancies for strategy and personnel in sports.
SPORTHEADS advises national and international clients from the sports sector primarily in the areas of digitalization and market intelligence, growth strategies and M&A as well as executive search and strategic HR planning.
With his many years of experience at the DFB and Bayer 04 Leverkusen, Wolfgang Holzhäuser is one of the most experienced managers in German sports and an intimate connoisseur of the soccer scene. During his time as Head of Licensing at the German Football Association, he was, among other things, the main driving force behind the introduction of limited companies and the associated opening up of soccer clubs to investors. When he moved to Bayer 04 Leverkusen, he not only regularly led the club into international competitions, but also set the course for the success of the DFL, of which he is an honorary member, by founding the league association.
As Chairman of the Advisory Board of SPORTHEADS, he will advise the management on the strategic development of SPORTHEADS together with the other Advisory Board members Bernd Wahler, Arnd Benninghoff, Dr. Michael Vesper, Wolfgang Niersbach and Max Lehmann.
Quote Dr. Marcus Hochhaus, Managing Partner SPORTHEADS
"His experience from 15 years as a successful manager in the Bundesliga and his insights into the structures of an association and the strategic orientation of a professional league have raised the quality of our consulting to a new level. At the same time, Wolfgang Holzhäuser has always remained curious, calls a spade a spade and is able to question habits charmingly like no other. He is a sportsman in the best sense of the word. I understand his desire to step back operationally, and at the same time I am glad that he will remain associated with SPORTHEADS in his new role. I thank him very much for these exciting six years."
Quote Wolfgang Holzhäuser, Chairman of the Advisory Board SPORTHEADS
"As soon as the time is reached to withdraw operationally, you should do it. And the time was reached at the end of last year. I therefore decided to join the advisory board of SPORTHEADS and take over the chairmanship. It was great to be a partner from the very beginning and to see how an agency start-up became one of the leading consulting agencies specializing in sports. I will now accompany the further development of SPORTHEADS as chairman of the advisory board together with my colleagues."
SPORTHEADS offers a unique combination of strategy and personnel consulting specifically for executives, specialists and committees in sports. The owner-managed agency, based in Munich and Cologne, provides support for strategically important issues in both the commercial and sports sectors.
