The chairperson is Christoph Voigt (Audi) and the Vice Chairperson is Thierry Klein (Nokia), both elected to their second term. The board of the association renewed the mandate of the outgoing executive committee: Dino Flore (Qualcomm) will continue to serve as director general, Markus Dillinger (Huawei) as secretary, and Fathi Arafat Husein El-Dwaik (BMW) as treasurer.
