Munich. As previously announced, Harald Krüger assumed the role of Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG with effect from the end of today’s Annual General Meeting. Krüger, who holds an engineering degree, was most recently Board of Management member for Production. He joined the BMW Group in 1992 and has been a member of the Board of Management since December 2008. He was head of Human Resources until assuming responsibility for MINI, Motorrad, Rolls-Royce and Aftersales at the end of June 2012, a position he held until moving to head of Production in April 2013.
