Wolfgang Duerheimer to leave Bentley/Bugatti and go to Audi as development chief

Article by Christian Andrei, on May 13, 2012

It appears that Bentley/Bugatti CEO Wolfgang Duerheimer and Volkswagen marketing chief Luca de Meo will move to Audi, according to German media reports that announce a broad management reshuffle at the Volkswagen Group. The report says that Wolfgang Duerheimer will replace Audi’s development chief Michael Dick, while Luca de Meo will become Audi’s sales chief, replacing Peter Schwarzenbauer.

Moreover, Audi's head of procurement Ulf Berkenhagen and production chief Frank Dreves will leave the company’s management board. Still, they will not leave the Vw Group, as Berkenhagen will become purchasing chief of Volkswagen's commercial vehicles division and he will be replaced by Bernd Martens, which is currently purchasing boss for VW's new models.

According to Automobilwoche, Dreves and Dick, both 60, are likely to go into retirement later this year. This reshuffle aims to reduce the average age of the seven-member management board.
