Volkswagen Group has appointed Porsche executive Gernot Doellner as the automaker's new strategy chief.
Doellner moves to the post from his job as Porsche's head of product and concepts.
He will start on May 1 and replaces Michael Jost, who said earlier this month he will quit after more than a decade with VW.
"With the addition of Gernot Doellner we are gaining a proven strategist who has gained extensive experience at Porsche AG in the management of model series and in development strategy and innovation management," said VW Group CEO Herbert Diess in a statement on Tuesday.
Doellner, a mechanical engineering graduate, joined VW in 1993. He moved to Porsche in 1998. Among his responsibilities was project manager for the Porsche 918 Spyder in 2009-2010. He was head of the Panamera series from 2011 to 2018.
