Volkswagen Truck & Bus and MAN Truck & Bus will see a reshuffle of key executive board positions as of 1 July, 2017.

Josef Schelchshorn – to date chief human resources officer and Arbeitsdirektor (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. He will be succeeded in all three positions by Carsten Intra, whose duties to date on the executive board of MAN Truck & Bus will be assumed by Frederik Zohm (R&D) and Ulrich Dilling (production & logistics).

Andreas Renschler, CEO of Volkswagen Truck & Bus and the Volkswagen management board member responsible for commercial vehicle activities, 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.”

The contract for Joachim Drees as CEO of MAN SE and of MAN Truck & Bus which was originally set to run for three years was extended by the supervisory bodies for another five years as of 1 April, 2018.

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