Michael Schiebe will replace Philipp Schiemer as CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH & Head of the Top End Vehicle (TEV) Group on March 1, 2023. He reports directly to Markus Schäfer, Member of the Board of Management of Mercedes-Benz Group AG, Chief Technology Officer, responsible for Development and Procurement.

Schiebe will lead the performance brand Mercedes-AMG into the future, especially with regard to electrification. This was shown with the preview Mercedes-AMG Vision AMG Concept, which was shown last year. The concept vehicle rode on a special AMG.EA architecture, with the powertrain components developed from scratch.

Another important role change at Mercedes-Benz is retirement. After 34 years at Mercedes-Benz, Wolf-Dieter Kurz will end his career as “Head of Product Strategy & Management” on March 31, 2023 to implement changes to the car manufacturer’s product portfolio as part of his strategy.

Oliver Thöne, currently Head of Production Planning Mercedes-Benz Cars, will succeed Kurz as Head of Product Strategy & Control on March 1, 2023.

“The success of Mercedes-Benz is one thing above all: a team effort. Some of our colleagues, who have made a significant contribution to our success over many years, are now beginning a new phase in their lives – they are entering well-deserved retirement or are looking to develop professionally beyond our company. I would like to thank them from the bottom of my heart for their tireless efforts and wish them all the best for the future,” said Ola Källenius, CEO of Mercedes-Benz Group AG.
