Stratmann named as Mahle Group’s new Chairman of the Management Board and CEO

February 1, 2018

Mahle Group has announced that Dr Jörg Stratmann is the German automotive supplier’s new CEO and Chairman of the Management board, following the departure of its former CEO, Wolf-Henning Scheider.

Stratmann joined the Mahle Group after leaving Continental AG in 2008 and has taken on increasingly demanding tasks. Until now, he has been responsible for managing the entire Mahle Behr Group, now the Mahle Thermal Management business unit, which comprises a number of operational units and most recently accounted for over 45% of Mahle’s group sales.

 “Dr Stratmann brings a wealth of automotive experience – from both a technical and a business perspective. He is the ideal person to head the Mahle Group,” stated Chairman of the Mahle Supervisory Board, Prof Dr Heinz K Junker.

Commenting on the departure of Scheider, Prof Junker added, “Our thanks go to Mr Scheider above all for his intensive work during the transformation process that is currently affecting the whole automotive industry.”

As Germany’s fourth-largest automotive supplier, the company has sales of around EUR 13 billion with 77,000 employees.
