BMW Group has announced the appointment of Christian Wiedmann as president of BMW Group Thailand, effective on April 1.
Wiedmann succeeds Stefan Teuchert, who is now set to take up a new position as CEO of BMW Group Russia.
A 17-year veteran of the BMW Group, Wiedmann previously served as Managing Director and CEO at BMW Group Financial Services Australia in 2016 after having spent several years in South Korea to oversee the overall financial operations as CEO of BMW Financial Services Korea.
In his new position, Wiedmann’s responsibilities will cover the management of all BMW Group Thailand business divisions – including BMW, MINI, and BMW Motorrad.
Wiedmann joined the BMW Group in 2001 and has since served various functions in BMW Group in many regions across the globe – including Germany, Japan, Austria, Greece, South Korea and Australia. His previous roles have taken him to Thailand on two occasions – in 2003 for one year and again in 2011 for three years – to supervise financial operations at BMW Financial Services Thailand.
