Engine manufacturer Tognum has appointed former chief technology officer and deputy CEO Dr Ulrich Dohle as its new chairman and CEO, effective 1 July.

Dr Dohle succeeds Joachim Coers, who left the company after nine years at his own request. Tognum – which produces diesel and gas engines under the MTU brand – said a priority for the manufacturer would be to expand its operations around the world. At the same time, it said it also planned to intensify its co-operation with Rolls-Royce and Daimler.

In April, the Tognum supervisory board extended Dr Dohle's contract until 31 December, 2015.
