On 1 January 2022, Bosch will complete the generation change at the top of the board of management that it has been preparing for the long term. The chairs of the supervisory board, board of management and the mobility solution business will be retiring and making space for younger colleagues.
The chairman of the supervisory board Franz Fehrenbach will retire and be succeeded by Prof. Dr. Stefan Asenkerschbaumer. Dr Volkmar Denner hands over the chairmanship of the Bosch board of management to Dr Stefan Hartung, who as chairman of Mobility Solutions has been responsible for the largest business sector since 2019 and has developed “perspectives for the mobility of the future”.
Dr Christian Fischer will become deputy chairman of the board of management. Dr Markus Heyn will take over as Chairman of the Mobility Solutions business sector. The new Chief Financial Officer will be Dr. Markus Forschner.
“The supervisory board owes Volkmar Denner a huge debt of thanks for the economically successful and technologically visionary way he has managed the company,” said Franz Fehrenbach, chairman of the shareholders’ meeting and of the supervisory board of Robert Bosch GmbH. He added: “Volkmar Denner has set the course for the company’s future endeavors toward sustainability, and made the group fit for the digital future. Under his leadership, Bosch became the world’s first carbon-neutral industrial enterprise as early as February 2020, as well as a global pacemaker in the fields of artificial intelligence and IoT.”
