Stuttgart/Germany, December 7, 2020 - A change is to take place in the MAHLE Management Board. On April 1, 2021, Jumana Al-Sibai (48) will become the new member of this committee. She will assume responsibility for the Thermal Management business unit and thus the management of the MAHLE Behr Group, the largest business area of the Stuttgart-based technology group with sales of almost EUR 5 billion and approximately 24,000 employees (2019). Jumana Al-Sibai will join the company from the Bosch Group, where she has most recently held the position of Board member Chassis Systems Control. Her predecessor at MAHLE, Bernd Eckl (53), will leave the company on February 1, 2021, at his own request, in order to pursue new projects.

“With her extensive business expertise, her competence in the technology sector, and her management experience, we are sure Jumana Al-Sibai will lead the Thermal Management business unit, which is so crucial for the MAHLE Group as a whole, into an economically sound future,” says Prof. Dr. Heinz Junker. “Jumana Al-Sibai will be one of the few women with overall operational responsibility for a major business unit of a global German group in the automotive industry. We are delighted to have gained Ms. Al-Sibai for MAHLE, and we are convinced that she will be a valuable member of the MAHLE Management Board.”

The MAHLE Supervisory Board believes that Jumana Al-Sibai will make a key contribution to the successful development of the Thermal Management business unit in these challenging times.
