board of management of the Volkswagen brand, take over responsibility for
production for the Volkswagen brand from Dr Wei▀gerber. In addition, it
is intended that Werner Neubauer (54), today head of the Wolfsburg plant,
become responsible for heading up the central functions of the production
organisational unit at Group level. Both will report to Dr Wei▀gerber.
The successors to Reinhard
Jung and Werner Neubauer in their current positions will be named when the
above changes are implemented.
