  • Birgit Boehm will succeed Stefan Richmann as CEO for BMW Group Financial Services in the U.S. and Region Americas, effective April 1, 2022. 

Woodcliff Lake, NJ – April 1, 2022… BMW Financial Services NA, LLC announced today that Birgit Boehm would succeed Stefan Richman as the CEO of BMW Group Financial Services in the U.S. and Region Americas, effective April 1. 

In her new role Boehm will be responsible for leading business strategy and operations for BMW Group Financial Services in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Brazil. She had previously served as senior vice president finance and group treasurer of BMW Group since April 2018. 

Boehm will report directly to Gerald Holzmann, the global head of BMW Group Financial Services in Munich.

“Birgit brings a wealth of global experience, a familiarity with the U.S. market, and a long track record of success to her new role,” said Holzmann.  “Under her guidance and leadership, I have no doubt that BMW Group Financial Services in the region will continue to be an asset not only to the national sales companies, but most importantly to our customers as well."   

Boehm joined the BMW Group in April 2018 after 26 years working in various finance functions across the automotive industry in Europe and the U.S.  After completing her bachelor’s degree in business administration in Münster (Germany) and Madrid (Spain), she graduated from Stanford University with a master’s degree in management.

Stefan Richmann will return to BMW Group headquarters in Munich after more than five years in the U.S. to take on a new role as senior vice president of corporate strategy.  Prior to his role as the CEO of BMW Group Financial Services, Richmann was the executive vice president and chief financial officer of BMW of North America.
