Changes to the Board of Management of Robert Bosch GmbH

December 18, 2023

The following changes have been made to the Board of Management of Robert Bosch GmbH with effect from 1 February 2024.

Dr Frank Meyer (45) has been appointed to the Board of Management of Robert Bosch GmbH and will assume responsibility for the Energy and Building Technology business sector with the Building Technologies and Home Comfort Group divisions and for the Smart Home subsidiary.
The doctor of physics joins Bosch from the German energy group E.ON, where he has held international management positions since 2016 – most recently as CEO of E.ON Italia since 2021. Previously, he was Chief Innovation Officer at E.ON and CEO of E.ON Solutions GmbH, where he was responsible for the international development of new business in the field of smart home energy solutions and e-mobility. Meyer also worked at Vodafone Germany and as a consultant for the Boston Consulting Group.
Dr Christian Fischer (55), Deputy Chairman of the Board of Management of Robert Bosch GmbH and partner of Robert Bosch Industrietreuhand KG, will retain responsibility for the Consumer Goods business sector, which includes the Power Tools division and BSH Haushaltsgeräte GmbH. At the same time, he will head the Growth Acceleration 2030 project and thus assume responsibility for the Bosch Group’s strategic growth initiatives.
With Frank Meyer, we are gaining an internationally experienced manager who has successfully managed technology and service businesses with business and end customers, focussing on innovation and sustainability

Under the leadership of Christian Fischer, an important course was set for the successful development of the Energy and Building Technology business sector. We will achieve the sales and earnings targets set for 2025 ahead of schedule this year. Frank Meyer can build on this solid foundation.

With the new division of responsibilities in the Board of Management, we are well positioned for the future and for further growth in our Consumer Goods and Energy and Building Technology business

Further significant changes in responsibilities as of 1 February 2024:
Dr Tanja Rückert (53), CDO, will assume responsibility for the Industrial Technology business sector, including the Drive and Control Technology division and the Bosch Manufacturing Solutions product area, while retaining her previous responsibilities for the Digital Business & Services division, among others. Digitalisation is progressing at a rapid pace, particularly in industrial technology. Bosch has been digitalising and networking its own plants and those of its customers for over ten years and is now combining Industry 4.0 with artificial intelligence. The areas are increasingly merging. Bosch is taking this development into account and is bundling responsibility for the divisions under Tanja Rückert.
Dr Markus Forschner (56), who successfully managed the Industrial Technology business sector during the transition, will focus on his duties as Chief Financial Officer in future.
