Rüsselsheim. Today, the Opel Supervisory Board has named Dr. Thomas Sedran (47) Deputy Chairman of the Management Board of Adam Opel AG. He will act as chairman until a permanent chairman is in place. He assumes this responsibility in addition to his role as Board Member in charge of Operations, Business Development & Corporate Strategies which he holds since April.
"We will continue to implement our business plan as it was outlined and work to improve it. We will further reduce bureaucracy and continue to challenge the corporate culture," said Opel's Supervisory Board Chairman and GM-Europe President Steve Girsky.
Deputy Supervisory Board Chairman and Head of the Opel Works Council Dr. Wolfgang Schäfer-Klug: "The new team around Steve Girsky stands for a change that Opel/Vauxhall urgently needs: leaner management structures, transparency, accountability and enforcement capability. This will put Opel back on a growth path.”
