There’s a changing of the guard at Mercedes AMG.
Volker Morninweg is leaving to become head of the company’s van division on April 1. He’ll be replaced by Ola Kaellenius, who was most recently in charge of the Mercedes plant in Tuscaloosa, Ala.
Morninweg, 50, replaces Wolfgang Bernhard, who was appointed a member of the Mercedes parent Daimler AG board of management in February.
Kaellenius, 40, has also been head of high-performance engines for Mercedes and did a stint at McLaren Automotive. He takes over on April 1 at AMG.
