“Joerg Buchheim not only brings more than 20 years of diverse and international executive leadership experience in the automotive supply industry, but also has a successful track record in both growing and realigning automotive supplier businesses”, said Kongsberg chairman, Firas Abi-Nassif.

“His strategic vision and deep operational competencies make him the right leader to drive the success of Kongsberg Automotive in its next phase.”

Buchheim has led complex automotive supplier businesses in situations of growth as well as restructuring. Having served almost 15 years at Tier-1 lighting and electronics specialist, Hella, he played a pivotal role in profitably growing the supplier’s business in China.
