There are not many car design opportunities more covetable than heading-up the team at Bentley Motors. But Andreas Mindt will be moving into the place vacated by his predecessor Stefan Sielaff who has left after six years to pursue interests outside of the firm.

Mindt will take up his position at Crewe as Director of Design in March after fulfilling the role as Head of Exterior Design at Audi where he completed a complete evolution of the styling of Audi cars across the range.

Mindt will lead a design section of over 50 talented people at the Bentley headquarters based in Crewe involved in creating very single facet that makes up the modern icon that is Bentley including exterior, interior and colour details.

Above all Mindt will accelerate the Bentley journey towards full electrification by 2030. And that’s something that the marque’s original creator would have been fascinated by.
