The Supervisory Board of Volkswagen AG appointed Oliver Blume as a Chairman of the Board of Management of Volkswagen AG effective September 1, 2022, combining with his role as the Chairman of the Board of Management of Dr. Ing. h.c.

Oliver Blume addresses the employees of the Volkswagen Group. 'Technologies and processes are changing. So does our work. But one thing does not change: success is teamwork. If you want to be and remain successful, you have to act as a team - passionately and fairly, just like in sports,' emphasises Blume. The new task at the top of the Volkswagen Group is both a great honour and a responsibility, he adds.
