Executive reshuffle at MAN and Volkswagen

Volkswagen Truck & Bus and MAN Truck & Bus will see a reshuffle of key Executive Board positions at the start of July.

Josef Schelchshorn, Chief Human Resources Officer and Executive Board member responsible for employee relations at MAN SE and MAN Truck & Bus as well as the Head of HR for the Group at Volkswagen Truck & Bus, is leaving the company for personal reasons.

Schelchshorn will be succeeded in all three positions by Dr Carsten Intra, whose duties on the Executive Board of MAN Truck & Bus AG will be assumed by Dr Frederik Zohm (Research & Development) and Dr Ulrich Dilling (Production & Logistics).

Andreas Renschler, CEO of Volkswagen Truck & Bus and the Volkswagen AG Board of Management member responsible for commercial vehicle activities, said he regrets Schelchshorn’s decision.

“We are sad to see Schelchshorn leave the company. He has made a splendid contribution toward the start-up of Volkswagen Truck & Bus and set the course for the future at MAN. I would like to thank Schelchshorn – also on behalf of the rest of the Volkswagen Truck & Bus Management – for his valuable assistance and wish him all the best for the future.”

Emphasising the importance of the Executive Board appointments, Saki Stimoniaris, Chairman of the Group Works Council of MAN SE, said:

“It is only together that we are able to achieve our most important goals: secure and attractive jobs and a successful company. This also includes stability at Executive Board level – we support all the individuals. On behalf of the workforce, we would like to thank Josef Schelchshorn for relations that were always close and trusting.”

Meanwhile, there is some stability with the extension of Joachim Drees' contract as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of MAN SE and of MAN Truck & Bus AG, which was originally set to run for three years, was extended by the Supervisory bodies for another five years as of April 1, 2018.

Joachim Drees has been CEO of MAN SE and of MAN Truck & Bus AG since 2015. He is also a member of the Management of Volkswagen Truck & Bus GmbH.
