Audi announced a strong-level reorganization of management on Monday as it grapples with life after Volkswagen Body’s diesel-emissions scandal.

The automaker is still on the receiving end of numerous criminal investigations and instrument recalls, as well as criticism from unions. But four of its board members aren’t coming along for the float. Audi AG is replacing CFO Axel Strotbek, production chief Hubert Waltl, vulnerable resources head Thomas Sigi and sales chief Dietmar Voggenreiter at the end of this month. 

Interestingly, CEO Rupert Stadler, who has received valuation for his handling of the diesel crisis, will persist as CEO of the company. The supervisory board extended his go down with in May.

According to Automotive News, VW’s commercial vehicles’ sales head Bram Schot was chosen to take Voggenreiter’s attitude, while CFO Strotbek will be succeeded by Alexander Seitz (who has been embedded in Volkswagen’s intersection venture with Chinese automaker SAIC).

Audi has named VW manager Wendelin Goebel, a trusted associate of VW CEO Matthias Müller and Audi’s own Stadler, to supplant Sigi as head of personnel. Meanwhile, Peter Koessler, the chief of Audi’s apparatus in Gyor, Hungary, was tapped succeed Waltl as production lead.

Germany’s Manager Magazin reported on the planned reshuffle not quite the end of July, stating Mueller had already informed the four executives at an Audi management meeting about their imminent dismissal.
