A Dutchman has to keep the car manufacturer Audi out of the crisis this year
INGOLSTADT. Change from Stadler to Schot completed – OR leader: "No steps".
Now at the wheel: Bram Schot
The change at the top of the company heralded the new year for the German automaker Audi. Bram Schot became the official successor to Rupert Stadler as Chief Executive Officer of Ingolstadt yesterday.
There is a lot of work waiting for them in the Netherlands to help Audi out of the crisis. Audi is behind with the approval of its models according to the new exhaust emission standard WLTP, as a result of which sales in Europe have collapsed. And the management still has to deal with the consequences of the diesel scandal.
Peter Mosch, Chief Executive Officer, sees the car manufacturer in the new year "facing many challenges: 2019 will not be a walk and the staff and the works council can not always get the coal out of the fire alone," Mosch said the "Danube Door". The fact that the employees' representatives on the supervisory board of the Audi parent Volkswagen had been for the fact that Schot was also part of the VW board was a big leap forward, Mosch said. The masse Schot "now with full commitment to Audi in Wolfsburg justifies". It needs a clear course, new processes and structures and a collaboration with the entire workforce, Mosch asked.

In the VW Group, the staff carousel was strongly reversed the previous year. Approximately 100 management positions have been fulfilled. The automaker is faced with "enormous technological and entrepreneurial changes", says Fährungskreisen.
