Jörg Schwitalla will be the new Executive Board member for Personnel and Integrity at Tognum AG as of 1 January 2013.

Tognum has created the new position on the Executive Board on the one hand to meet future requirements – such as the planned integration of Bergen Engines AS and the group’s growth targets – and on the other hand to achieve the aim of bringing the Personnel, Legal Affairs and Compliance divisions closer together and to underline the growing importance of ethics in corporate management.


Jörg Schwitalla was Chief Human Resources Officer on the Executive Board of MAN until July 2012 and has since acted in an advisory capacity for the Volkswagen Group. With his appointment as the new member of the Tognum Executive Board, Jörg Schwitalla assumes responsibility for Personnel, Legal Affairs, Patent Management, Data Protection and Information Security, in addition to Business Practice & Compliance.  He will also perform the duties of Industrial Director within the group.

Tognum’s CEO Joachim Coers said: “In Jörg Schwitalla, we are fortunate to have gained an experienced Executive Board member for Tognum who will assume responsible for Personnel and Integrity. The increasingly stronger and more consistent focus by all companies these days on corporate integrity and the processes needed to achieve this require someone with the considerable experience and expertise that Jörg Schwitalla brings to us from his six years at MAN.“
