Continental restructuring its Powertrain Strategy & Technology department

The Powertrain division of the international automotive supplier Continental is restructuring to enable a greater focus on its technological and strategic planning activities. The Powertrain division’s Strategy & Technology (S&T) department has been responsible for these two aspects of forward planning. This is now being replaced by the Technology & Innovation (TI) and Business Development & Strategy (BD) departments.

Technology & Innovation will concentrate on the advanced development of new Powertrain technologies, the hardware and software architecture of next product generations and the coordination of innovation management. Additionally, the department will be responsible for the implementation of advanced development projects together with the business units in the Powertrain division. As of January 2014, the TI business unit is being led by Dr. Oliver Maiwald, former Engineering Manager at Delphi Diesel Systems in Wolfsburg.

Business Development & Strategy will focus on the development of a robust Powertrain strategy, the identification of new trends and markets, as well as working closely with customers and the relevant authorities to ensure Powertrain’s products are optimally aligned with their requirements. Christopher Breitsameter assumed responsibility for this department in December. In addition to this new role, Breitsameter will remain in his current role as assistant to the Member of the Continental Executive Board and President of the Powertrain division José Avila. Both managers will report directly to Mr. Avila.
