After studying mechanical engineering (focus: automotive technology) at RWTH Aachen, Schweers worked as a senior engineer at the university's Institute of Automotive Engineering, where he also earned his doctorate degree.

He was born and grew up in the "Borgward city" of Bremen, where he came into contact with the company's spirit at an early age. "I've come full circle," he says. "When I was a child and teenager in Bremen, I was bitten by the Borgward bug early on, because you still saw many Borgward vehicles in the streets back then! What's more, I walked past the Borgward Villa every morning on my way to school."

Florian Herbold, 38, Chief Engineer for Transmission Development and Integration, is a real car guy who learned his profession from the ground up. After completing his training as a car mechanic, Herbold studied mechanical engineering at the Wiesbaden University of Applied Sciences. A native of Kassel, he got his first professional experience as a research engineer at a renowned drive system specialist in Stuttgart. Herbold then switched to a company of the Daimler Group, where he worked in a variety of senior positons on the development and application of hybrid automatic transmissions.

He sums up his reasons for joining Borgward Group AG as follows: "I was literally electrified when I read that Borgward was planning to play a technologically leading role like it did in the 1950s and enter the European market with plug-in hybrids and electric vehicles. With my experience and ideas, I can help to make the brand's rebirth a success!"
