In the role, Feigel also becomes a member of the management board of AMS.

Feigel, who holds a doctorate in mechanical engineering, succeeds Ralph Lauxmann, who has assumed overall management lead for a customer project within Continental on 1 August, 2021.

Feigel has many years of international management experience in the automotive industry with expertise in braking and chassis systems. Most recently, he served as MD Europe for an international automotive supplier. Prior to that, he held various positions at Continental for nearly 25 years.

“I am very pleased with Hans-Jörg Feigel we have won back an experienced manager, who will continue the successful work of his predecessor,” said Continental executive board member and head of the Autonomous Mobility and Safety business area, Frank Jourdan.

“Together with his team, he will further advance our innovation strategy and product and function roadmap. At the same time, I would like to thank Ralph Lauxmann very much for his future-looking achievements and contributions. I wish him all the best for leading a very important customer project for us, which requires top management attention.

In his new position, Feigel will act as the central contact for strategy and future technologies for all business units of Autonomous Mobility and Safety, from 2022, Safety and Motion and will work with the CTO organisation at Automotive Technologies.

During his time at Continental, Feigel played a key role in the development of the MK C1 electrohydraulic brake-by-wire braking system, which went into series production for the first time worldwide at Alfa Romeo in 2016.

In their functions Feigel and Lauxmann will report to Jourdan.
