Dr Markus Keicher, 51, will take over as the new Head of Production and Site at the Mercedes-Benz Ludwigsfelde plant as of April 1, 2020. Currently Keicher is Head of Production and Site at the Mercedes-Benz Bremen plant. He will take over from Sebastian Streuff, who is responsible for the transformation process of Mercedes-Benz Vans as of February 1, 2020.

Markus Keicher studied mechanical engineering at the University of Stuttgart and he was doing his doctorate at Imperial College in London. In 1998 he joined the trainee program of the then DaimlerChrysler AG. After a number of management and project jobs at the Mercedes-Benz Berlin site and in passenger car production, maintenance, technical service and production planning, Keicher switched to the BBAC Joint Venture in Beijing, China in 2011. There he was responsible right from the very start for setting up and starting production of the first engine production works within Mercedes-Benz Cars outside Germany, right up to reaching peak production. From summer 2017, Keicher headed engine production at the Mercedes-Benz Untertürkheim site and acted as the speaker for the entire worldwide engine production network, before taking over as Head of Production and Site Management at the Mercedes-Benz Bremen site in September 2018. Keicher’s successor in Bremen will be decided soon.

Streuff has headed the Transformation Office in Stuttgart since February 1, 2020 and reports directly to the Head of Mercedes-Benz Vans. Previously, Streuff was site manager and managing director of Mercedes-Benz Ludwigsfelde GmbH for more than four years. With the efficiency and transformation initiative, which Mercedes-Benz Vans embarked upon at the beginning of 2019, important leverage was established. In order to anchor the initiative even more emphatically for Mercedes-Benz Vans, the Transformation Office, an organisation dedicated to the three pillars Performance, Strategy and Transformation, was set up.
