Wolf-Henning Scheider has resigned from Robert Bosch to join engine parts maker Mahle. He was chief of Bosch's automotive division. Bosch is now grouping all automotive activities grouped under the new mobility solutions business sector, and has assigned Rolf Bulander to take over Scheider’s role.
Bulander will also be in charge of Bosch’s diesel systems, gasoline systems, and starter motors and generators divisions as well as for the electrical drives division. Dirk Hoheisel, meanwhile, will take charge of Bosch’s automotive steering business as well as the chassis systems control, car multimedia, and automotive electronics divisions.
Assuming Scheider’s sales and marketing roles will be Markus Heyn, who was most recently president of the Bosch diesel systems unit. He will also be in charge of the automotive aftermarket division and the ETAS and Bosch Engineering subsidiaries.
Scheider, meanwhile, will commence his stint at Mahle in April 2015 and will replace current chief executive Heinz Junker three months later, the company said in a statement. Junker will replace Klaus Bleyer as supervisory board chairman.
Bosch and Mahle are partners in the Bosch Mahle Turbosystems joint venture, which develops and manufactures exhaust-gas turbochargers.
