Mark Adams, Vice-President GM Europe Design, was recognized by an international panel for his work on the design of the new Opel/Vauxhall Insignia with the "DESIGNBEST 2009" award from AUTOBEST, organizers of the event. Turkey's jury member Okan Altan presented the trophy Thursday night in a ceremony in Istanbul.
The jury, comprising 15 members from as many countries, gave special kudos to Adams and his Rüsselsheim-based team for the design language "sculptural artistry meets German precision" introduced with the new Insignia. This dynamic design language will be used going forward as the brand introduces new models starting later this year with the next generation Astra.
AUTOBEST is the only international independent jury focusing on best-buy choice for mainstream customers. AUTOBEST jury members hail from central and eastern Europe, representing a virtual market with more than 300 million people.
"I am very proud to accept this award on behalf of the whole team at GM Europe Design," says Adams.

The flowing lines of the Monza's greyhound-like, fastback shape represents "a symbol of the next wave" of Opel designs, and by extension of Buick's future styling, says designer Mark Adams, who recently was tapped as the point man on GM's joint Opel-Buick strategy.
...
"If you look at the voluptuous, flowing shapes on the Monza concept, and then you think about the sculptural beauty of Buick's designs in North America, they start to fit together nicely," Adams told Automotive News after unveiling the concept here. Adams was reassigned in June from lead designer for Cadillac and Buick design in Detroit to become head of design for GM Europe, with a special focus on aligning Buick and Opel.
