Fisker Automotive has named two new members to the Board of Directors: Hans-Joachim Schöpf and Barry Huff. The Board of Fisker Automotive, which makes the Karma plug-in hybrid, is led by Chairman Ray Lane, Managing Partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield and Byers. Schöpf has been working in the German automotive industry for 38 years where he has held several senior positions.

Aside from working for big OEMs, he has also served on the boards for Ballard Power Systems, Vancouver, and Valmet Automotive, which assembles the Fisker Karma.

Schöpf’s experiences include being Executive Vice President of Mercedes Benz, Member of the Board of Mercedes Car Group with links to Chrysler, Mitsubishi and McLaren, Senior Vice President (SVP) A- and C-Class, SVP Passenger Cars, overall advanced development and IPM, and SVP manufacturing S- E- and C-Class.

According to a company statement, Schöpf’s experience is “unmatched,” as he has supervised the development and implementation of new automotive technologies such as electronic stability control and common rail injection gasoline and diesel engines, as well as new business operations like MbTech engineering GmbH.

What Barry Huff brings to the board are 40 years of international financial experience related to Deloitte LLP’s services to client audit committees and management.

Huff also served as Vice Chairman from 1995 to 2008, where he oversaw and directed accounts for the accounting firm’s most valuable clients.
