Dr. Klein joined ZF Friedrichshafen AG in 2014 and was appointed to the board of management in 2018.

In his new role as chief executive, Dr. Klein will be responsible for corporate sales, research and development, the System House of Autonomous Mobility Systems, and the aftermarket division.

“Together with the Board of Management team and our employees worldwide, I am really looking forward to realising our concept of sustainable, safe and affordable mobility for everyone,” Dr. Klein said.

“At the same time, climate protection and digitalisation, transforming markets, and the increasingly unstable economic environment require anticipation and speedy reactions. We feel confident – after all, for the last 108 years, ZF has proven that we know how to transform!”
