Effective immediately, Helmut Ernst, head of ZF Aftermarket, will lead all market and product topics of the organization. Predecessor Neil Fryer has left the company at his own request to take on a new assignment outside ZF.
Right after the acquisition of TRW by ZF in May 2015, the integration of the former two aftermarket organizations began to form a united market approach as one ZF aftermarket organization on Jan. 1, 2017. Ernst emphasized Fryer’s contribution, saying, “He played a decisive role in shaping the ZF Aftermarket organization while simultaneously keeping the customers’ expectations and experience always in the focus. We thank him for his achievements and support in the course of the integration.”
With his team, Fryer worked continuously on the optimization of the product and service portfolio to secure market growth for the customers. “The dedicated team, all of whom [are] aftermarket experts, will shape together with me the mobility of the future in the aftermarket,” said Ernst.
