Prof. Dr.-Ing. Gerhard Müller is the new Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Müller-BBM Holding AG
At the Annual General Meeting of Müller-BBM Holding AG, held in Planegg on 25 May 2019, Rolf Michelsen’s long term as Chairman of the Supervisory Board ended. The Supervisory Board unanimously designated Prof. Dr.-Ing. Gerhard Müller, full professor at the Chair of Structural Mechanics of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and one of the university’s Senior Vice-Presidents, as Rolf Michelsen’s successor. “I am very much looking forward to supporting this group of innovative companies, whose history I know from the very beginning, thanks to my father”, he gratefully said after his appointment. He thanked Rolf Michelsen for his many years of office as Chairman of the Supervisory Board and for his commitment to the company since 1975. In various management positions and, finally (since 2013), as Chairman of the Supervisory Board, Michelsen played a major part in making the Müller-BBM Group what it is today: a successful association of medium-sized companies preserving its original and exceptional employee/ownership culture.
They definitely know each other: Müller-BBM and Professor Gerhard Müller, new Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Müller-BBM Holding AG. Following his academic education – studies, doctorate and habilitation at the TUM – Professor Müller held a post-doc position at the École Nationale des Ponts et Chaussées in Paris (1991) before, in 1992, he became a consulting engineer at Müller-BBM GmbH, and, in 1995, its Managing Director. In 2004, he was appointed professor at the TUM. In his fields of research, structural dynamics and vibro-acoustics, he focusses on the dynamic soil-structure interaction, on the dynamics of buildings and on vibration-induced sound fields in buildings and vehicles. Since 2017, he has been Chairman of the Educational Committee at the Bavarian Chamber of Engineers for Construction, and since 2019 of the Engineering Education Advisory Council at the VDI, the Association of German Engineers.
