Kay Bernstein, born 8th September 1980 in Marienberg in Erzgebirge, first visited the Olympiastadion in 1994. In almost three decades, the Herthaner, who became a member of the club in 2010, has experienced personally numerous highs and lows in blue and white: from the founding of the Harlekins Berlin ’98, leading chants in the Ostkurve or celebrating in the main stand. In June 2022, Hertha members voted the businessman president of the club. “Hertha is the culmination of my life and mirrors life in this wonderful city, Berlin. Enjoyable and wild, sometimes complicated, but always full of heart, Hertha BSC and my family are the loves of my life!” stated Bernstein of his deep connection to the Blue-Whites.
Fabian Drescher was born on 26th October 1982 in Berlin. He first came into contact with Hertha when his father brought him along to the Olympiastadion for the first time. A year later he got his first season ticket, and Drescher started to get involved around the club. In the same way, the lawyer helped support the fan organisation Förderkrieses Ostkurve in 2012. Shortly afterwards, Drescher, who was born in Spandau, took up a position on the club tribunal. Drescher has been on the presidential board since 2016 and has been vice-president since 2022, focussing on football, and social themes like personnel and membership affairs. As a Herthaner who has stood in the Kurve for a number of years, his heart beats for the same interests as the fans. Because of his profession, the lawyer is an important point of contact in relation to legal questions for the board.
Anne Jüngermann was born on 15th September 1986. Almost 15 years later, Jüngermann, who was born in Ludwigsfeld, took in her first game at the Olympiastadion – and fell in love with the ‘Old Lady’ on the spot. In 2002, Jüngermann became a member of the club, and shortly afterwards was a founding member of Team U18. Together with other young Hertha fans, she worked in close collaboration with fan and member support on many exciting schemes for the club. Even after finishing her studies as a sport journalist, Jüngermann continued to be involved with the club on a voluntary basis, writing for the programme, accompanying Herthinho on school visits and doing press work for the 1. FC Lübars women’s team. Jüngermann, a married mother of one, has been a member of the presidential board since 2020.
Peer Mock-Stümer, born on 20th September 1967 in Berlin, is an entrepeneuer and was chairman of the six-man board of the boxing department from 2007 to 2020. During his time in the role, the department became the one with the largest membership in Berlin. Mock-Stürmer also played a leading role in the opening of the Max Schmeling gym in the Olympiapark. In October 2020, Hertha members voted him as a member of the presidential board.
Ingmar Pering was born in Berlin in 1965. The lawyer has been connected with the club for a number of decades – most recently after returning to Berlin and becoming a member of the club in 1997. Pering sat on the investment board between 2000 and 2008. Pering moved up to the presidential board in 2008 and was chairman of the boards for members’ affairs and departmental issues until 2016, in the four following years he has worked on these boards as well as on the Finance committee. On the presidential board, he is also responsible for members’ affairs as well as concerns relating to Hertha’s history, constitution and partner cities.
Hans-Joachim Bläsing has been a member of the club for over a quarter of a decade and led the Hertha’s skittles department for over 20 years as its first chairman. Bläsing, who was born in Berlin on 12th October 1949, gave up the position having been elected to the presidential board in June 2022. Since then, Bläsing has had a particular focus on the supervisory board, which he has been heavily involved with. Through this, Bläsing wants to contribute to leading Hertha into a successful future.
Tim Kauermann, born 10th April 1985 in Kassel, became interested in the club during his studies overseas through the influence of his father, Dr Karl Kauermann, chairman of the supervisory board. He then decided in 2011 to become a member of the club and has been interested and passionate about outcomes and decisions relating to Hertha even since. In June 2022, he was voted by members onto the presidential board, where he would now like to make an active contribution. “There are large challenges but to do the small, easy things right can also have a positive effect. We will try to do both of these concurrently if it is possible,” suggested the entrepenuer.
