Martina Biene, who is currently the Head of Volkswagen Small and Compact Product Line, will succeed Robert Cisek as the Chairperson and Managing Director of VWSA once all the necessary regulatory approvals have been attended to.
Cisek took over the reins at VWSA in November 2020 at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic. He successfully led VWSA through a turbulent period of semiconductor shortages, which impacted Kariega plant production and vehicle sales. Cisek also ensured that no jobs were lost at VWSA during this period.
Robert Cisek will leave Volkswagen Group South Africa (VWSA) on the 31st of October 2022 to take up the position of Head of Volkswagen Small and Compact Product Line in Wolfsburg, Germany, reporting to Thomas Schaefer, CEO of the Volkswagen Passenger Cars Brand.
