► There shall be no new CEO.
Definitely not within the brief time period. Membership president Werner Gegenbauer (71): “We’re capable of act; we do not want fast choices.” First; within the coming weeks; the committees will focus on whether or not Schmidt’s duties might be divided and continued inside administration. Tendency: Sure; that’s the intention.

►Schmidt’s tenure can solely be assessed sooner or later.
To this point; the CEO has not been capable of reveal any seen successes. In his 10 months; he labored largely internally; making an attempt to construct a brand new tradition of efficiency and provoke modifications whose worth has but to be demonstrated. Schmidt: “Hertha was not a chaos membership in my time.”
