Automobile manufacturers, Volkswagen (VW) have named Thomas Sedran to lead its commercial vehicles division, it announced on Tuesday.

Currently VW’s head of strategy, Sedran will assume his new post on Sept. 1, it said in a statement. He replaces Eckhard Scholz, who is leaving at his own request.

Sedran joined VW in 2015, after heading General Motors’ (GM.N) Chevrolet and Cadillac brands in Europe.

A person familiar with the matter had told Reuters earlier that VW was set to name Sedran as head of its commercial vehicles division, which makes vans, light commercial vehicles and pick-up trucks.

Sedran’s appointment is the second management change VW announced this week.

On Monday VW announced that Stefan Sommer, former chief executive of automotive supplier ZF Friedrichshafen, would become its procurement chief from January 1, 2019.
