    REGROUPING OF SALES AT VOLKSWAGEN


    Separation and strengthening of Group and brand functions – personnel appointments




    WOLFSBURG, Germany*- Volkswagen has taken further steps to separate Group and brand functions.

    With a view to enhancing the efficiency of processes and ensuring stronger strategic management by the Group and the transfer of responsibility for their operations to the brands, the Group Board of Management has decided on a number of organizational and personnel changes.


    At the level of the Group, sales and marketing are to be coordinated across the individual brands in the future. This function is to include Group marketing, multi-brand marketing for key customers, the central sales of original spare parts, the control of the customer service functions of the various brands and wholesale and retail development for all brands. With immediate effect, Stefan Jacoby (46) is to assume responsibility. He is also to manage the further development of the Group Sales Germany function, as successor to Mr. Flandorfer. At the meeting held on 21 April 2004, the Supervisory Board already appointed Mr. Jacoby General Representative of Volkswagen AG. In this function, he reports directly to the Chairman of the Board of Management of the Volkswagen Group, Bernd Pischetsrieder.


    Responsibilities have also been reassigned within the Volkswagen Brand Group (including VW, Skoda, Bentley and Bugatti). Georg Flandorfer (57) assumes responsibility for Volkswagen Brand sales as a Member of the Brand Board of Management. In this position, he is to succeed Detlef Wittig (62), who will be transferred to Mlada Boleslav (Czech Republic) as Chairman of the Board of Management of Skoda a.s. with effect from 1 October 2004. Detlef Wittig will be the successor to Vratislav Kulhanek (60), who is to be appointed Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Skoda Auto a.s. In his new position, Detlef Wittig will remain a Member of the VW Brand Board of Management, ensuring close liaison within the brand family. This decision reflects positive experience from the AUDI-SEAT Brand Group, where Andreas Schleef is both Chairman of the Board of Management of SEAT S.A. and a Member of the Audi Board of Management.


    A separation of brand and Group functions of the type now taking place in Sales has already been completed in Production. Responsibility for the Group functions of Production, namely planning and control, has been assumed by Werner Neubauer, who was appointed General Representative of Volkswagen AG in this connection at the Supervisory Board meeting on 21 April 2004. At the same meeting, it was decided that Reinhard Jung should be given responsibilities for production operations at the Volkswagen Brand. Jung will assume these functions as Member of the Brand Board of Management on 1 August 2004.


    Bernd Pischetsrieder: "The Group brands must be able to concentrate on their customers and products. The Group is responsible for the strategic management of all brands. This reorientation will allow more balanced consideration of brand and Group interests and ensure higher efficiency throughout the Volkswagen Group."


    The Volkswagen Board of Management has also taken a number of other personnel decisions. Rutbert Reisch (63), Head of the Group Treasury, is to retire at the end of 2004. From 1 October 2004, the Group Treasury will be managed by Giuseppe Savoini (58), formerly responsible for Group cash and funds flow.


    As of 1 October 2004, responsibility for Group-wide organization and information technology has been assigned to Klaus-Hardy Mühleck (49), who currently performs similar functions at AUDI AG. In this position, he is to succeed Dieter Schacher (60), who will be retiring at the end of 2004 following 21 years with the Volkswagen Group."
