As of July 1, 2024, VfB Stuttgart has announced the appointment of Fabian Wohlgemuth as the new Sporting Director.

Fabian Wohlgemuth's Journey VfB Stuttgart Fabian Wohlgemuth

Fabian Wohlgemuth joined VfB Stuttgart as Sports Director in December 2022. Before his tenure at Stuttgart, Wohlgemuth, a 45-year-old native of Berlin, accumulated extensive experience in the football industry. After his playing career, he worked as a coach and scout in the youth division of Hamburger SV. He then spent seven years leading the youth performance center at VfL Wolfsburg. In 2018, he transitioned to Holstein Kiel as Sporting Director and later moved to SC Paderborn 07 in May 2020, where he held the same position. Wohlgemuth holds an A-license as a coach and has a degree in business administration. He is also a father of two.

Contributions to VfB Stuttgart

During a challenging period both sportingly and financially, Wohlgemuth quickly made significant contributions to the stabilization of VfB Stuttgart. His efforts included appointing head coach Sebastian Hoeneß, securing crucial contract extensions with key players, and restructuring the squad following a successful relegation battle last summer. His collaborative approach ensured close coordination with Alexander Wehrle, other board members, the supervisory board, and club committees. This teamwork culminated in one of the most successful seasons in recent club history, with a runner-up finish in the Bundesliga, qualification for the UEFA Champions League, and participation in the Supercup.

Future Plans and Leadership Transition

With Wohlgemuth now focusing on his new responsibilities, the club will soon decide on his successor for the Sports Director position. Wohlgemuth will oversee this transition, ensuring a smooth continuation of leadership within the club’s sporting division.

VfB Stuttgart looks forward to the strategic insights and leadership that Fabian Wohlgemuth will bring to his new role, anticipating further success and stability for the club.
