The German Bernd Krottmayer takes the April 1, 2023 the position of CEO of Mercedes Vitoria, replacing Emilio Titos, who will retire in January after more than 40 years at the helm of the largest company in the Basque Country, with 4,800 direct employees.

Krottmayer graduated Engineering sciences and computer science from the University of Stuttgart and in 2002 he joined the Mercedes Benz Group, where he held various management positions in logistics and production until 2010, the car company said in a note.

In 2011, he was appointed CEO of the Romanian company Star Transmission and Star Assembly, both of the Mercedes Benz group. Six years later he was appointed assembly manager at the plant in Sindelfingen (Germany) and from January 2021 until now he is production manager for rough assembly, painting and maintenance at the same passenger car plant.

The announcement of his arrival in Vitoria-Gasteiz coincides with the downward revision of Mercedes Vitoria production forecasts for this year to 141,781 vans due to the significant volume of stocks the plant holds and the difficulty of transporting vehicles in seaports.

It also fits the renewal of the works councilnow led by the trade unions opposed to the collective labor agreementalthough the agreement was later ratified by the workers in a referendum.

That “social calm” in the company was essential to attracting a 1,200 million investment from the German multinational to Vitoria, which will allow the Álava plant to double its current production.
