Tognum Board Gets New Member

Posted on December 17, 2012

Jörg Schwitalla, 51, has been named to the Tognum AG executive board, responsible for Personnel and Integrity, effective Jan. 1. Tognum said it has created the new position to meet future requirements – such as the planned integration of Bergen Engines AS and the group’s growth targets – and to bring the Personnel, Legal Affairs and Compliance divisions closer together and underline the growing importance of ethics in corporate management. He will also perform the duties of Industrial Director within the group.

Schwitalla was chief human resources officer on the executive board of MAN until July 2012 and has since acted in an advisory capacity for the Volkswagen Group.
