Global engineering group GKN has appointed Dr Markus Schermann as senior director of product technology within its eDrive business at GKN Driveline.
GKN Driveline is a supplier of contemporary and electrified drivelines.
Mr Schermann has more than 25 years’ experience in automotive electrical engineering and joins GKN from Magna, where he was leading electric and hybrid vehicle innovation as director of product area electrification.
He studied electrical engineering at the University of Technology Vienna with special focus on control of electrical drives. In addition to Magna, Markus has also worked for Siemens as well as running his own electrical engineering consultancy.
His appointment bolsters and broadens GKN’s electronics capabilities as it develops the next generation of electric drive technologies.
GKN has played a leading role in the provision of electric mobility and its electric axle technology features on leading hybrid vehicles including the BMW i8, BMW 2 Series Active Tourer, Volvo XC90, Peugoet 3008, Mitsubishi Outlander and Porsche 918 Spyder.
Mr Schermann said: “I am joining GKN at an exciting time as it has plans to be the clear leader in electrified drivelines.
"Next generation eDrive systems will be more integrated than ever before and offer greater functionality, which obviously requires sophisticated electrical engineering.
"I will work with GKN’s existing software & electronics engineering team to develop the systems of the future.”
He added: “GKN has a rich history of evolving, adapting and staying one step ahead of the competition.
"It is an organisation with a 250-year history, but always with a view on the future."
Mr Schermann will be based in GKN’s eDrive Centre of Excellence in Bruneck, Northern Italy.
