Michael Horn, CEO of Volkswagen Group of America, is leaving the company six months after the German automaker admitted to rigging U.S. diesel emissions tests.

Horn, 54, is departing “by mutual agreement” to pursue other interests, effective immediately, VW said in a statement late Wednesday.

He will be replaced on an interim basis by Hinrich Woebcken, who on April 1 will take over as head of VW’s North American region.
