Harald Krueger, who just took the CEO reins at BMW, had a dizzy spell and collapsed to the floor Tuesday during the group’s press conference.

According to The Telegraph, it was Krueger’s first appearance as the group’s CEO.

A BMW spokesman attempted to explain that Krueger had not been feeling well before the conference, but decided to go ahead with it anyway.

“Harald Krueger experienced a moment of dizziness. As a result, the press conference was cancelled in order that Mr Krueger could be examined by a doctor. Mr Krueger’s health is stable and he is recovering well,” stated the spokesman.

We wish Krueger the best in his recovery.

UPDATE: (9/16) Krueger told German newspaper Bild that he’s doing fine and that his doctor had told him he only had a short fainting spell.

A BMW spokesman told the German newspaper that Krueger’s condition was “nothing serious, and that’s what counts.”
