Joint Managing Directors Step Down from SMC
SMC Automotive GmbH, a part of the Malaysian BSA group has announced that Richard Kok Kee Cheong, Malaysia and Rolf Bene, Germany are “no longer Managing Directors of the company.” Bene resigned from his position last week. The pair had been in charge since the beginning of the joint venture operation with BSA.
SMC had been struggling with manufacturer quality problems in 2006. Bene, who will stay on at the company as sales and marketing director said he hopes the new structure will create again “the unlimited support by the mother company, linked with the comeback to a successful operation for the next years.”
