Two unnamed but experienced managers from the Volkswagen Group will find work in the newly created positions of Group Operations Managers. One of them will be responsible for premium brands such as Audi, Porsche or Bentley, and other popular mass-selling brands of cars, such as Volkswagen, Seat or Skoda.
In the corporate hierarchy, they will stand just below the board of directors. According to the reporting website, CEO Herbert Dies wants to use it to reduce duplication within the group and thus improve profitability. One of the goals, for example, is to reduce competition between Škoda and Seat.
In recent years, attention has increased its focus on the joint development of the car, which will then be sold under many different brands. This can be seen on cars on the MEB platform, even now precisely in the form of the Škoda Enyaq-VW ID.4-Audi Q4 e-tron siblings. Likewise, more will be built on the MEB platform, and will also be applied to the supercar and the passat – both cars will be developed together by Škoda and production will be in Bratislava.
Dis believes that there are still a number of redundant developments within the group. The new CEOs will be tasked with researching and simplifying these issues.
