Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has announced that Johann Wolf has been appointed as Director of Manufacturing, effective from 1 November 2018.

Wolf is an exceptionally experienced production expert, having spent over 40 years with the BMW Group in senior roles across the automotive manufacturing spectrum. He has led teams in all aspects of production and he brings with him an intimate knowledge of the manufacturing process. In his current role, which he has held since 2013, Wolf is responsible for integrating all new products into the largest BMW Group manufacturing plant in Europe at Dingolfing.

In addition to his broad production experience, Wolf is a specialist in small volume manufacturing, including the development of prototype parts, bespoke production and the handcraftsmanship of individual components. He led the parts development teams for the BMW Formula 1 team, BMW Motorsport for M vehicles and the BMW Individual (personalisation) Programme. He also specialises in modern technologies and materials, including the integration of carbon fibre into the production process.

Wolf’s experience of handcraftsmanship began with his apprenticeship with BMW AG, starting in 1977. An award-winning Master Craftsman in Foundry Pattern Making for Sand Casting, he initially managed several BMW foundries.

Wolf is married with a daughter and will be based at the company’s Head Office and Manufacturing Plant at the Home of Rolls-Royce at Goodwood, West Sussex.

Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, said, “I am delighted to announce that Johann Wolf has been appointed as Director of Manufacturing. His exceptional production and specialist small volume experience, with over 40 years at a senior level in the BMW Group, will be invaluable and he is warmly welcomed to the Rolls-Royce family.”

Wolf replaces Frank Ludwig, who will take up the position of Director of Painted Body at BMW Group Plant Regensburg from 1 December 2018.
