Frank Jung becomes the new Head of the Historic Archive
The public relations and press department decided on some key personnel changes: On January 1, 2018, Frank Jung took over management of the company archives. There are new press spokespersons for product and technical communications and finance and IT, too.
Frank Jung (40) succeeds Dieter Landenberger, who moved to Volkswagen AG in August 2017. Previously, Jung spent six years as head of the Tradition division at Recaro Holding GmbH in Stuttgart. He has close ties to the Porsche company and to Zuffenhausen: Frank Jung's family founded the “Stuttgarter Karosseriewerk Reutter & Co” – a close partner of Porsche since the design office was set up in 1931. Along with the Porsche Museum, the corporation's “memory” forms the bulk of the content for historic public relations work. Frank Jung will drive the digitalisation of the company archives, as well as the focus on future-oriented requirements.
