New President of Original Equipment Passenger Car Unit

Xu Jie, MANN+HUMMEL’s Managing Director China, heads global Original Equipment Passenger Car unit, effective immediately.

Ludwigsburg/ Shanghai, June 13, 2024 – MANN+HUMMEL, a global leader in filtration solutions, is pleased to announce the appointment of Xu Jie/徐捷 as President of the Original Equipment Passenger Car unit. The business encompasses air and liquid filter systems for vehicles with internal combustion engine and new solutions for new energy vehicles.

Xu Jie has been with MANN+HUMMEL for 19 years, holding various leadership roles in Germany and China, including Vice President R&D for the APAC region. He studied at the University of Shanghai for Science and Technology, and speaks English, Mandarin and Shanghai dialect.

“As the Asian market plays an increasingly dominant role in the automotive industry, Xu Jie’s extensive experience in the region made him a natural choice for the newly created position,” said Kurk Wilks, President and CEO of the MANN+HUMMEL Group. “In China, an all-time high of almost 25.8 million new passenger cars were registered in 2023 – we will use the momentum to expand our position in this significant market and remain dedicated to fostering speed and customer-centricity across all segments.”

With this step, MANN+HUMMEL emphasizes its decision to meet the high-speed development in the Chinese automotive market by opening its New Energy Vehicle Technology Center in Shanghai in 2023. The region has emerged as one of the world’s leading markets for alternative drives, and MANN+HUMMEL is determined to actively shape this development.

“The automotive industry is experiencing transformative changes globally,” Xu Jie stated. “I am excited to lead the global teams out of Shanghai, and to adapting our portfolio to new technologies and evolving customer preferences. Our focus will be on the development of innovative filtration solutions for new forms of propulsion, opening opportunities to offer new products for future technologies to our customers and to tap into this market.”
