BMW board member Peter Schwarzenbauer, who is leading Mini and Rolls-Royce through periods of major change, will speak at the Automotive News Europe Congress on June 10 in Birmingham, England.
Schwarzenbauer, 55, is responsible for the two BMW-owned British brands on the group management board.
Mini has just reported its best-ever first quarter. With full availability of the redesigned Cooper hardtop and a new sedan, global sales rose 28 percent to 74,312. Meanwhile, Mini is developing its next generation of cars and is considering production of the Superleggera sports car concept.
At Rolls-Royce, a new crossover goes on sale in 2018. The famed luxury-car brand appears ready for a growth phase. IHS has forecast that Rolls' worldwide sales will rise from a projected 4,111 cars this year to 5,703 in 2020.
Schwarzenbauer began his career at BMW in 1984 after studying business administration at Munich University of Applied Sciences. He moved to Porsche in 1994 and was appointed CEO of Porsche Cars North America in 2003. From 2008 to 2012, he was a member of the board of management of Audi AG.
