In the new role that Bolle will hold alongside his existing position, he will be tasked overseeing the company’s corporate IT sector, leading its Bosch Software Innovations subsidiary, and coordinating corporate technology and engineering methods.

“With the appointment of a Chief Digital Officer, Bosch is signaling its determination to continue driving forward the company’s digital transformation, while at the same time intertwining its technology, product, and IT strategies as closely as possible,” the company said.

The unveiling of the new CDO position comes alongside a number of executive changes at the company that has now appointed new Board members including Rolf Najork, Managing Director of Bosch Rexroth AG and Christian Fischer, Senior Partner at Roland Berger.

Bosch has said that the CDO role will also encompass the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) function.

The search is on for the Top 100 Leaders in Technology 2021 – nominated by readers of Technology magazine and open to all.

The initiative has been launched and nominations are now open, with the final, prestigious Top 100 due to be announced during Technology and AI LIVE running 14-16 September, beamed from London to the world.

This latest, definitive list of the leading executives and influencers in the industry will be announced at the event and shared across social media channels, this website, and presented in a special supplement that honours all of those named in our annual list.

The Top 100 Leaders follows on from the well-received Top 100 Women in Technology that BizClik Media Group (BMG) – publishers of Technology magazine, AI magazine and a growing portfolio of industry-leading titles – produced in March this year to coincide with International Women’s Day. 

“The Top 100 Women recognised the incredible and influential women driving our industry,” says Scott Birch, editorial director, BMG. “The success of that initiative encouraged us to recognise the Top 100 Leaders – individuals championing everything that we love about technology and embracing best practice that’s good for business.”

Nominations are already coming in, with some notable highlights including:

Rhonda Vetere - Herbalife

Bryan Smith - Expedient
