HAMBURG (Reuters) -- Volkswagen Group's steering committee will meet today to discuss the development of a new structure for the automaker, but won’t discuss personnel issues, two sources familiar with the matter said.
Top players at Europe's biggest carmaker are drawing up a new structure to tackle problem areas laid bare by a showdown between CEO Martin Winterkorn and former Chairman Ferdinand Piech.
Volkswagen is looking for a chairman to replace Piech, who quit in April after a confrontation he had provoked with Winterkorn.
"They are talking about daily business and about structures, not about personnel," one of the sources said of the meeting.
Berthold Huber, the former boss of powerful German trade union IG Metall, is the automaker's interim chairman.
Company sources told Reuters on Thursday that VW Group sales chief Christian Klingler could lose his job as part of the reorganization.
