At its meeting today, the Supervisory Board of Schaeffler AG resolved to reappoint Klaus Rosenfeld (57) as Chief Executive Officer for a further five-year term.

Klaus Rosenfeld joined the Schaeffler Group as Chief Financial Officer in March 2009. In October 2013, he took over the position of CEO in addition to his role as CFO, initially on an interim basis. In June 2014, he was appointed permanent CEO of Schaeffler AG, whose IPO took place under his leadership in October 2015. With the Roadmap 2025, Klaus Rosenfeld laid the foundation in 2020 for the further development of Schaeffler AG to become a leading motion technology company.

On November 15, 2023, Schaeffler AG published an offer document for a voluntary public acquisition of outstanding shares of Vitesco Technologies Group AG. The acquisition offer is the first step of a planned three-step overall transaction that will lead to a merger of Vitesco into Schaeffler and the creation of a leading motion technology company. The combined company will consist of four focused “pure-play” divisions that will have leading positions in their respective markets. This includes a combined E-Mobility division with strong growth potential.

Georg F. W. Schaeffler, Family Shareholder and Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Schaeffler AG, said: “Klaus Rosenfeld stands for continuity and progress in equal measure. Over the past ten years, he has successfully guided the Schaeffler Group through challenging times, positioned it for the future under the Roadmap 2025 and successfully initiated the strategic implementation of the transformation into a leading motion technology company with the planned integration of Vitesco Technologies. We are pleased that Mr. Rosenfeld will continue to be available to us as CEO of Schaeffler AG, above all to implement the merger with Vitesco. I look forward to continuing our cooperation and, on behalf of the entire Supervisory Board, wish Mr. Rosenfeld continued success.”
