Important changes for BMW next year, as current CEO, Dr Norbert Reithofer will be replaced by Harald Kruger, starting with May 2015. Harald Krüger will become Chairman of the Board of Management effective the end of the Annual General Meeting on 13 May 2015.
The current Chairman of the Board of Management, Dr. Norbert Reithofer, will be put forward for election to the Supervisory Board at the 2015 Annual General Meeting. All these changes are made because the current Chairman of the Supervisory Board, Prof. Joachim Milberg, will step down as a member of the Supervisory Board effective the end of the 2015 Annual General Meeting.
This move enables a generational change also at the head of this body. Once his mandate on the Supervisory Board is ended, Prof. Joachim Milberg will take on a leading role connected with the BMW Group’s worldwide CSR activities and charitable foundations.

Next BMW CEO, Harald Krüger
(49), joined BMW AG in 1992, following completion of his degree in mechanical engineering, and has been a member of the board since 1 December 2008 when he was given responsibility for Human Resources. On 30 June 2012, he took over responsibility for Mini, Motorrad, Rolls-Royce and Aftersales BMW Group. Since 1 April 2013, he has been responsible for Production at the BMW Group.
