FRANKFURT -- BMW CEO Harald Krueger has returned to work after he spent most of last week recovering from his fatigue-related collapse on stage at the Frankfurt auto show.
“He’s back at work and feeling 100 percent fit,” a BMW spokesman said on Monday.
Krueger, 49, fainted last week as he was commenting on BMW's latest models during a news conference.
The collapse overshadowed BMW's presentation of its latest flagship 7-series sedan, which the company hopes will narrow the Mercedes-Benz S class's sales lead in the upper premium segment. It was also Krueger’s first high-profile event as CEO since he took over from Norbert Reithofer in May.
BMW said the fall resulted from a “moment of dizziness" and said there were no serious causes behind the incident.
Krueger's collapse triggered a media debate in Germany over whether top executives are struggling to cope with a heavier workload in the modern business environment.
