Blog: Dave LeggettBMW's Michael Ganal

Dave Leggett | 9 December 2008

I was sorry to hear of the death of BMW board member Dr Michael Ganal yesterday, following what BMW described in its release as a 'severe' illness. Sounds like it was quick. He was only 54. I last saw him at the BMW Annual Report press conference at the end of March and I last interviewed him late last year at a BMW 1 Series Coupe event in Copenhagen. He was very good value for money, happy to perch at each table to answer journalists' questions long after dinner - and he had a good command of the varied subject matter. He seemed like a very 'safe pair of hands' and I'm sure he'll be much missed by colleagues.
