Michael Och has taken over from Jordi Cabanero as head of quality assurance at Bugatti.

A certified engineer, Och is extremely well-versed in the world of quality management for the vehicle industry: before taking on his new role in Molsheim, he worked at various international car manufacturers, where he managed quality assurance for entire locations and vehicle production facilities.

He also worked as a head of manufacturing and as a production manager. Before moving to Alsace, he worked in the central quality assurance division for the Volkswagen Group.

"I am looking forward to my new role at this incredible brand, the creator of some extraordinary hyper sports cars, like the Chiron and the Divo. Raising the bar for the already high standards of quality is a challenge that I am happy to accept," said Och.

Cabanero is moving within the VW Group at his own request and will be assuming a new role in China.
