Silke Tödter
Silke entered service with what was then Bova, at the end of the nineteen eighties. Having occupied various positions within Bova, she was made Director of Kleyn-Bova, a joint venture between Bova and Kleyn Trucks in 1998, where she took on responsibility for the purchase and sale of second-hand buses and coaches. Her work formed the basis for the successful VDL Bus Center. In April 2010 she was appointed General Manager at VDL Bus & Coach Deutschland. In addition to occupying this position, until March 2012, she also retained responsibility for the sale branches of VDL Bus Center.
With the departure of Silke Tödter, VDL must bid farewell to a bus and coach woman through and through who over the years has used her enthusiasm and expertise to manage various teams, and who succeeded in placing the VDL Bus Center on the international map. In Germany, she delivered a considerable boost to the sales of both new coaches and public transport buses.

Boris Höltermann en Marcus Schmidt
Over the past few years, Boris Höltermann has been responsible for expanding the position of VDL in Germany’s public transport market. With his appointment as General Manager of VDL Bus & Coach Deutschland, he will also be responsible for the sale of coaches and mini and midi buses, and will take on general management of VDL Bus & Coach Deutschland. Boris Höltermann will be assisted in his new position by Marcus Schmidt.
Marcus Schmidt has been employed as a sales specialist at VDL Bus & Coach Deutschland since March 2015. As Operations Manager, he will primarily be responsible for After Sales and Parts. VDL Bus & Coach is convinced that this new management team will succeed in further extending the successful position of VDL Bus & Coach Deutschland.
