Alfons Dintner (50) is to succeed Matthias Müller (50) with effect from August 1. He is taking charge of project management for the future Audi plant in the Mexican city of San José Chiapa and will become CEO of AUDI MÉXICO S.A. de C.V.

Matthias Müller is taking on a senior position in Audi’s Technical Development in Ingolstadt.
“Alfons Dintner knows the processes at the Mexico location thanks to having worked as Board Member for Production at VW de México,” commented Dr. Hubert Waltl, Audi Board Member for Production. “Dintner is a proven production expert and will get the new Q5 off to a successful start.”
A native of Hepberg (Bavaria), he is a precision engineering graduate of the Munich University of Applied Sciences. He started his career at AUDI AG in 1987 and was responsible for such projects as the Audi A1* launch at the Brussels plant. He moved to Volkswagen de México in 2011.
Thomas Sigi, AUDI AG Board of Management Member for Human Resources, remarked: “Audi is the first premium manufacturer to have a production location in Mexico. As an Audi man and a production expert with experience of working in Mexico, Alfons Dintner is predestined for this task.”
Dr. Hubert Waltl expressed his gratitude to Matthias Müller for his successful efforts in developing Audi México. Müller, who is moving to a senior position in Technical Development in Ingolstadt, has paved the way for the project’s success.
