VW’s integrity chief is leaving, and cheating diesel cars’ owners say buybacks are too slow – Los Angeles Times

A Volkswagen executive brought in to strengthen legal compliance in the wake of the automaker’s emissions cheating scandal is leaving the company.

On Thursday, the German automaker said its head of integrity and legal affairs, Christine Hohmann-Dennhardt, is leaving Volkswagen “due to differences in their understanding of responsibilities and future operating structures within the function she leads.”

It said she was leaving “by mutual agreement” effective Jan. 31. 

A former senior judge, Hohmann-Dennhardt joined Volkswagen from Daimler AG on Jan. 1, 2016. VW thanked her for achieving “important milestones” including the company’s settlement of civil and criminal litigation in the U.S. over cars rigged to cheat on diesel emissions tests, and for revamping internal guidelines and procedures.
