TRW Aftermarket has appointed Juri Wagenleitner as Director Strategic Planning, Business Development and Product Portfolio, Global Parts & Service. This news supports TRW Aftermarket’s market leading position in the areas of automotive active and passive safety, and highlights its role as the leading Corner Module supplier.
Neil Fryer, Vice President, Global Parts & Service, explained: “We welcome Juri to the team and are confident that with his focussed leadership skills and global experience he will be an asset to the business.
“As a key division within the wider ZF TRW business, TRW Aftermarket is in its strongest ever position. As we focus on leveraging global synergies within the organisation, we will create an even stronger link between the existing customer base and the wider market as we advance the development of our Corner Module – braking, steering & suspension – programmes.”
Prior to joining TRW Aftermarket, Juri spent 10 years at Roland Berger’s Automotive Competence Center, an international management consultancy. With a degree in Industrial Engineering and Management and a Master of Science (MSc) degree in Operations Management, Juri is an experienced automotive strategist.
Juri commented: “Globally, TRW Aftermarket is already in a strong position. I look forward to working with the team to build on this even further by taking a more strategic and global approach to our OES and IAM product development and portfolio management.
“In addition, as an integral part of the ZF family, we’ll work hard to leverage our combined power to inject the ‘best of both’ into the TRW Aftermarket offer, as we work to maintain our position as a leading automotive aftermarket supplier on the global leadership board.”
Juri will report to Neil and be based at the global TRW Aftermarket Headquarters in Neuwied, Germany.
