Former Audi CIO Mattias Ulbrich will take charge of IT at Porsche September 1, sources say.

Ulbrich, who relinquished his CIO position at Audi in February, will succeed Sven Lorenz, who is set to assume other responsibilities within the Volkswagen Group, parent company of both Porsche and Audi.

Company insiders say Ulbrich, who was in charge of Audi IT for six years, will also take charge of all production IT across the VW Group.

Ulbrich was succeeded at Audi by Frank Loydl, who was in charge of VW Group software development until moving to the premium car division as CIO in February.
