The Managing Director of the National Organisation for Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology GmbH, Dr. Klaus Bonhoff, will leave NOW and will in future be head of the Policy Department at the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI). He will thus occupy a central position within the ministry and, according to Minister of Transport Andreas Scheuer, will focus in particular on the “mobility of the future”.
Bonhoff has been active as a NOW spokesman since the company was founded in 2008, after working for Daimler on fuel cell cars for many years.
At the end of July 2019, several personnel changes in the BMVI went hand in hand with this change of personnel. Among others, Dr. Norbert Salomon, who was head of the basic principles department for 16 months, became the new head of the department Waterways, Shipping.
A successor for Bonhoff at NOW will probably only be named after a lengthy tender procedure. This is how long the second managing director, Wolfgang Axthammer, will probably take over his duties with the support of Thorsten Herbert, NOW’s Head of Transport and Infrastructure.
