Petra Geistberger will be the new Labor Director of the Munich Clinic (Mük). This was decided by the supervisory board at its meeting on Friday. The 53-year-old succeeds the second managing director, Susanne Diefenthal, who will no longer work for Mük after ten years. After Tim Guderjahn, 42, who took up his position as the new commercial director in February, the personnel change now means the second change at the top management of Mük.
For Geistberger it is a return to a well-known clinic. For many years, the designated successor worked at the Munich Clinic as head of the human resources department. She is currently head of department at the University Hospital in Frankfurt, where she is responsible for operational and strategic HR work. Therefore, according to Mük, the exact time for the change has not yet been determined. Diefenthal knows Geistberger well from their time together in Munich and appreciates her. She is certain that she will continue to develop the topics of the Mük “in the interests of the employees and patients”.
From the cooperation with the social partners to new paths in personnel development – Mayor Dieter Reiter (SPD) and the deputy chairman of the supervisory board Norbert Flach thanked Diefenthal for their commitment. The 58-year-old campaigned for the “balance between economic stability” while at the same time protecting the interests of the employees.
The next personnel issue, which the supervisory board of the Munich Clinic will probably already be dealing with at the end of May, is the search for a successor for the outgoing managing director Axel Fischer. The 54-year-old will retire no later than March next year.
