Volkswagen’s Supervisory Board strengthens Group Board of Management team
The Deputy Chairman of the Supervisory Board, Jörg Hofmann, said: The Volkswagen Group and its workforce are now facing the most important years of the transformation. Our starting position is rock solid. We must now continue to realise this historical change with a view to the future issues in a fair manner, thereby setting an example for the entire industry. This requires the highest level of focus and speed – and the future Group Board of Management will take this into account.
Brandstätter will be succeeded by Thomas Schäfer, who is currently Chairman of the Board of Management of Škoda Auto a.s. He is to familiarise himself with this role from 1 April onwards as COO of the Volkswagen Passenger Cars Brand and then move to the Group Board of Management on 1 August 2022.
Since 2016, Döss has been head of the Group’s Legal Division and has also been the member of the Board of Management of Volkswagen’s main shareholder Porsche Automobil Holding SE in Stuttgart with responsibility for “Legal Affairs and Compliance”.
The technology and financial markets expert Hauke Stars will take over the vacant position of Group Board of Management member for “IT”.
