press release

Stuttgart – As proposed by the shareholders, the supervisory board of Robert Bosch GmbH has appointed Dr. Rolf Bulander (54) to the board of management of Robert Bosch GmbH effective July 1, 2013. Effective the same date, Dr. Stefan Asenkerschbaumer (56) will be appointed the new deputy chairman of the Bosch board of management. Since 2010, Asenkerschbaumer has been the board of management member responsible for finance, purchasing and logistics, and information technology. He has worked for the Bosch Group since 1987.

After 30 years with Bosch, including 10 years of successful work for Automotive Technology, the Bosch Group's largest business sector, Dr. Bernd Bohr (56) is to retire for personal reasons. In the future, he will perform advisory and supervisory-board activities and devote more time to his family and personal interests. The shareholders and the supervisory board underscored Bohr's outstanding work in the numerous functions he held during his many years with Bosch. They thanked him for his great dedication, most recently on the Bosch board of management.

Dr. Rolf Bulander (54), who joined Bosch in 1988, will in the future be the Bosch board of management member responsible for quality, for the Gasoline Systems, Diesel Systems, and Starter Motors and Generators divisions, and for Bosch Engineering GmbH. A mechanical engineering graduate, Bulander has also had a successful Bosch career outside automotive technology. He has been president of the Gasoline Systems division since 2010.

Effective July 1, 2013, Wolf-Henning Scheider (50) will coordinate the activities of the Automotive Technology business sector. He will be responsible for marketing and sales as well as original equipment sales, and will thus be the most important contact person for automotive customers from around the world. In addition, he will be responsible for the Automotive Aftermarket, Electrical Drives, and Steering Systems divisions. Sharing responsibility for the Automotive Technology business sector alongside Scheider and Bulander effective July 1, 2013, Dr. Dirk Hoheisel (54) will be responsible for the Car Multimedia, Chassis Systems Control, and Automotive Electronics divisions. Within the same sector, he will also be responsible for systems integration.

Effective July 1, 2013, Peter Tyroller (55) will take over two new responsibilities. From Uwe Raschke (55), he will assume responsibility for Asia Pacific, and be based in Shanghai. From Bernd Bohr, he will assume responsibility for India. Tyroller has been a member of the Bosch board of management since 2006. Up to now, he has been responsible for marketing and sales, original equipment sales, and the Automotive Aftermarket division.

At the end of June, Uwe Raschke will hand over the responsibility for Asia Pacific he has held since 2008. Since January 1, 2013, he has been responsible for Europe, Russia, the Middle East, and Africa, as well as for the Consumer Goods business sector, which comprises the Power Tools division and the BSH Bosch und Siemens Hausgeräte joint venture. In addition, he bears group-wide responsibility for user experience.

The shareholders and supervisory board wished Dr. Stefan Asenkerschbaumer, Dr. Rolf Bulander, Dr. Dirk Hoheisel, Uwe Raschke, Wolf-Henning Scheider, and Peter Tyroller every success in their new functions.
