The BMW Supervisory Board has appointed Andreas Wendt as the new Board Member for Purchasing. Wendt previously managed the plant in Dingolfing.
The car manufacturer announced this on Wednesday in Munich. The previous head of purchasing, Markus Duesmann, announced his move to the Volkswagen Group in July and has since been on leave from BMW.
Duesmann is in talks for the chairmanship of the VW subsidiary Audi, but still has a BMW contract until September 2019. It is unclear whether the VW Group may prematurely premature the contract with Audi boss Rupert Stadler, which will run until the end of 2019 ended and Duesmann signed as his successor. Stadler has been in custody since June in connection with investigations into the diesel scandal.
Wendt made a career at BMW
The 60-year-old mechanical engineer had managed the BMW plant in Regensburg for eight years before he was appointed head of the largest German BMW factory in Dingolfing in Lower Bavaria at the beginning of 2017. Supervisory Board Chairman Norbert Reithofer said: "At all positions in the BMW Group, Andreas Wendt was a driver of innovation." He set standards in quality and complexity management.
The flexibility requirements for the supplier network and purchasing have increased enormously, and innovations can only be created in ever closer partnerships with suppliers. The 60-year-old could do it justice. He should take up his position on the board on Monday. (dpa)
