Dr. Heimo Prokop (52), Senior Vice President of Corporate Communications of Continental AG since March 2001, will leave the company at the end of 2009

The Executive Board thanks Dr. Prokop for his successful work in these nine eventful years and wishes him all the best for his future professional career.
