Continental has appointed Hans-Jörg Feigel as head of strategy and future solutions in the company’s Autonomous Mobility and Safety (AMS) business group. Feigel will also become a member of the AMS management board.
Feigel succeeds Ralph Lauxmann, who took over as overall management lead for a customer project within Continental at the start of August. Feigel has extensive expertise in the field of braking and chassis systems and most recently served as the European managing director for an international automotive supplier. Prior to that, he held various positions at Continental for almost 25 years, during which time he played a key role in the development of the MK C1 electrohydraulic brake-by-wire system, which went into series production for the first time at Alfa Romeo in 2016.
“I am very pleased that with Hans-Jörg Feigel we have won back an experienced manager who will continue the successful work of his predecessor. Together with his team, he will further advance our innovation strategy and product and function roadmap. At the same time, I would like to thank Ralph Lauxmann very much for his future-looking achievements and contributions. I wish him all the best for leading a very important customer project for us, which requires top management attention,” said Frank Jourdan, a member of the executive board of Continental AG and head of the Autonomous Mobility and Safety business area.
In his new position, Feigel will act as the central contact for strategy and future technologies for all autonomous mobility and safety business units and will work closely with the CTO organization in the Automotive Technologies business unit.
