New CEO for Tognum
By Helen Wright01 July 2013
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.
