13 Jan 2021 | International News : U.K.

Bentley Motors has announced the appointment of Andreas Mindt as its Director of Design, commencing 1 March 2021. He succeeds Stefan Sielaff, who is leaving Bentley after nearly six years to pursue other opportunities.

With more than 25 years of automotive design experience, all within the Volkswagen Group, Mindt was most recently Head of Exterior Design for Audi. In this six-year period, he oversaw the exterior design evolution of the breadth of the Audi model range, and the launch of the Audi Q8 and the e-tron.

Mindt will report to Dr. Matthias Rabe, Bentley's Board Member for Engineering. Working at Bentley's headquarters in Crewe, U.K., Mindt will lead a team of approximately 50 design experts with responsibility for the exterior, interior and colour and trim design for the full current and future Bentley product portfolio, concept and showcars.

Commenting on his new role, Andreas Mindt said, "Bentley is a jewel within the Volkswagen Group. Designing a car, and a future, is always a process based on the performance of many, not one, and so I look forward to working with my colleagues to help define the next phase for Bentley, into an electrified future."
