Škoda Group changes organisational structure of top management

The new organisational structure of Škoda Auto focuses more on operational performance management and the associated increase in the authority and responsibility of individual departments and divisions. As part of this change, the group’s highest management has been realigned into two key positions.

Didier Pfleger, previously CEO, has been appointed to the position of Executive Chairman. In this role, he will provide strategic leadership and set the overall vision of Škoda Group. He will use his extensive experience and expertise to shape the future direction of the group, promote innovation, strengthen partnerships and public affairs.

“Our group has experienced unprecedented growth and expansion over the past three years. This is thanks to a management team that has faced challenging market and supply chain conditions. And my goal is to enable Škoda to continue this growth. The organisational change that has taken place means we are ready to adapt to market dynamics and navigate a rapidly changing environment. Our vision is clear – to continue to be a leader in advanced and sustainable public transport solutions,” Didier Pfleger commented on the changes.

Petr Novotný takes over the role of CEO of Škoda Group. He will be responsible for the operation of all group divisions and production sites as well as for the strategic implementation of all group activities. He brings a wealth of knowledge and leadership skills to ensure that Škoda Group will continue to thrive and develop in a dynamic environment.

“The role of CEO of Škoda Group is an honour for me. At the same time, it is a great commitment and responsibility. Škoda Group is a company with a great tradition and I am ready to help it on its path to further growth, so that it becomes even more efficient and flexible. Our mission is to provide the world with public transport solutions that are at the forefront of technology and bring benefits to our customers and citizens,” concluded Petr Novotný.
