Article by Christian A., on August 8, 2014

Bentley has named Joerg Mull as its new head of finance effective September 1. He is replacing Jan-Henrik Lafrentz, who will be transferring to MAN. With the appointment, Mull will sit on Bentley's management board and will be tasked in the areas of finance, IT and business development, the carmaker said in a statement.

Mull joined Volskwagen Group in 2002 and was in charge of pricing of product projects. He was then promoted as chief of development controlling at the group in 2006. A year after, he was named as chief of finance at Volkswagen in China, a post he still holds.

Bentley is currently amidst a period of expansion as it prepares for the launch of an SUV – its fourth model -- in 2016 as well as for the possibility of further extensions to its lineup following that.

In July, we reported that Bentley may add a fifth model that could either be a two-seat sports car or a vehicle filling the gap between the Continental GT and the Mulsanne.

Bentley posted a 23-percent jump in sales in the first half of 2014 to 5,254 units and said it may be able to sell around 15,000 vehicles in 2018, as supported by strong demand for the SUV.
