Bentley CEO Wolfgang Duerheimer and Volkswagen marketing chief Luca de Meo are set to move to Audi as part of a broad management reshuffle at the VW Group premium brand, German media reports said.
Duerheimer, 53, will replace Audi's development chief Michael Dick while de Meo, 44, will succeed sales chief Peter Schwarzenbauer, German magazine Auto Motor und Sport reported on Thursday.
Audi's head of procurement Ulf Berkenhagen and production chief Frank Dreves are set to leave the brand's management board as part of the reshuffle.
Berkenhagen will become purchasing chief of Volkswagen's commercial vehicles division. His successor at Audi will be Bernd Martens, currently purchasing boss for VW's new models, according to Automobilwoche, a sister publication of Automotive News Europe.
The reshuffle is aimed at reducing the average age of the seven-member management board, Automobilwoche said. Dreves and Dick, both 60, are likely to go into retirement later this year.
Schwarzenbauer's position has been the subject of much speculation because he has clashed with Volkswagen Group sales and marketing chief Christian Klingler, according to reports.
Audi has not denied that the changes will happen, saying only it does not comment on personnel issues, Automobilwoche said.
