The BMW Group is reorganizing its Design division with Jozef Kaban, previously head of the BMW core brand design, taking over Rolls-Royce brand design, effective 1 April 2019.
Domagoj Dukec, previously head of BMW i and BMW M design, will assume design responsibility for the entire BMW brand. “This systematic consolidation of design responsibility will focus BMW brand design more consistently on modern products with a distinctive character,” The German automaker claims.
“The realignment of BMW Group Design is a signal of our future orientation. The new structure will ensure more efficiency, speed and agility in our design process,” said Adrian van Hooydonk, head of BMW Group Design, on Friday in Munich. It will be years before shareholders can see the results.
