Dr. André Hahn has been appointed the new managing director of the German Oldenburg Horse Breeding Association. As of 1 November Hahn will take over the management of the GOV in the Oldenburg Horse Center.

Hahn succeeds Heiner Kanowski, who was put on "non active" in March 2023 due to a difference of opinion with the management. Kanowski worked alongside Roland Metz, Bernhard Thoben and Hahn.
