Donghyun Jin has always been a big city lad, but of late he’s downsized. From Seoul and its population of ten million to a village of 3,850 in Germany’s Black Forest. Donghyun Jin, senior director of the Manufacturing division at NICE Holdings (majority shareholder of the BBS Group since 2015) arrived in the village of Schiltach as interim chief executive officer of BBS in order to navigate the alloy wheel manufacturer through the turbulent waters of Dieselgate and the introduction of WLTP.
Wheel manufacturer BBS says it is “strategically repositioning” itself, and has thus made a number of changes to its management team. Heinz Bartosch, chief executive officer since December 2016, was “released from his duties” as of 2 November 2018. He has been replaced with a new management team, a team that BBS says will “place a stronger focus” on expanding the BBS brand around the globe as well as on growing the company’s partnerships with OEM customers in the premium segment.
