“In addition to dealing with all the focus areas such as sustainability, digitalisation, innovative products, top quality and established processes, I am very much looking forward to working with people, both internally and on the customer side,” Wolff reports.

Dr Götz adds, “We want to be a reliable partner to our customers in OEM After Sales with our offers of tyres and services, enabling them to run their businesses successfully and to always be in a position to make car drivers an attractive offer.”
