Dr. Jochen Schröder, who has earlier worked as a BMW executive will take on a new role as General Manager of the new E-Mobility business division of Schaeffler Technologies AG & Co. Schaeffler has set up the new E-Mobility division as part of its automotive division from January 1, 2018 to focus on e-mobility. Schaeffler Technologies stated in a press release that “all products and system solutions for hybrid and purely battery-driven vehicles will be combined” under the new division.
The new business division is based in Bühl, which will serve as the base for Schaeffler Group’s new Automotive headquarters. Schaeffler’s move is in line with those of its competitors like Bosch, who have decided to focus closely on e-mobility.
Commenting on Schröder’s appointment, Schaeffler Group’s CEO Automotive OEM Matthias Zink said, “We are very pleased to welcome Jochen Schröder to our company. His experience in the various categories of electric mobility will provide the perfect basis for a successful start of our new E-Mobility business division and thus contribute to outline tomorrow’s mobility.
Jochen Schröder will formally take up his new position from 1 April and will report directly to Matthias Zink. He had a successful stint lasting over 15 years at BMW, during he held various increasingly senior roles in system design and advanced engineering of electric drivetrains and vehicle energy management. From BMW, he moved on to the position of CTO at Valeo Siemens eAutomotive GmbH at the end of 2016, where he oversaw global R&D activities.
