Klaus Filbry, Werder’s CEO and chairman of the board, has extended his contract with the club. Werder’s supervisory board, under the direction of board member Marco Bode, agreed to an extension with the 53-year-old in November 2019 until summer 2024. “We are pleased to be able to continue working together with Klaus. He has kept SV Werder Bremen on track over the last few years under sometimes difficult circumstances, and has helped the club build a solid financial foundation, allowing it to both function and compete. Klaus Filbry brings a level of continuity and stability at a key position for us,” said Marco Bode on the board’s unanimous decision to extend Filbry's contract.
