Bugatti is positioning itself for the future. Rico Kreyenberg will head the Finance and IT departments from 1 October. He succeeds Dr. J?rg Mull. Dominique Künzel now heads the Procurement department. Both report directly to Bugatti President Stephan Winkelmann.
Dr. J?rg Mull, former Chief Financial Officer at Bugatti, is relocating within the Volkswagen Group. After five years with Bugatti, Dr. Mull is leaving the French hyper sports car manufacturer to take on a newly created strategic leadership role at Volkswagen China Investment Corporation. Dr. Mull already worked in Asia for several years before joining Bugatti. “I would like to thank J?rg Mull for his extensive support and excellent work at Bugatti. In recent years, he has helped to make the Bugatti brand what it is today: a successful French manufacturer of exceptional hyper sports cars,” says Stephan Winkelmann, President of Bugatti.
Dr. J?rg Mull’s work will be taken over by Rico Kreyenberg. Going forward, he will head the Finance and IT departments, reporting directly to Bugatti President Stephan Winkelmann. The industrial and mechanical engineer and economist has held a variety of positions at the Volkswagen Group over the past 20 years and is a proven expert in finance. Bugatti has known Rico Kreyenberg for quite a long time: he has been responsible for cost control at Bugatti for the last four years.
There is also a structural change for Dominique Künzel, the Head of Procurement. He will also report directly to Bugatti President Stephan Winkelmann from now on. Dominique Künzel has many years of experience in the automotive industry, including 18 years with the Volkswagen Group. Before joining Bugatti, he worked in different managerial positions within the Group Procurement until 2018.
“Realigning our organisation is allowing us to streamline our structures so that we can work more quickly and more efficiently. Hence we are positioning ourselves robustly for the future,” says Stephan Winkelmann. “I am really pleased for Rico Kreyenberg and Dominique Künzel, two experienced automotive enthusiasts who are perfect for Bugatti and who will help to shape our future in their new positions, taking on even more responsibility.”
