"We're excited to mark the launch of our first all-electric car with an auction that raises funds and awareness for Global Green USA's groundbreaking work to bring smart, sustainable solutions to communities nationwide," said Michael Horn, president and CEO, Volkswagen Group of America.
Das Blog. : Volkswagen US Media Newsroom, 21 Jan 2014 [cached]
Michael Horn, veteran executive of Volkswagen AG and incoming president and chief executive officer of Volkswagen Group of America, made his first public appearance at Volkswagen's news conference at the 2014 North American International Auto Show last week.
"This is my dream job," Horn proclaimed to the audience gathered at the VW stand. "And for Volkswagen in the U.S. market, There's no turning back. This year we will build on the foundation of 400,000-plus sales a year and continue to grow, with our full commitment to the U.S. market, dealers, and customers."
The previous evening, at a media gala, as Horn made the rounds of automotive journalists and bloggers, he confided that he'd long harbored a hope of being able to oversee Volkswagen's U.S. operation someday. He had spent a few years in San Francisco as a student and a consultant before embarking on his 23-year career at VW and had developed both a fondness for, and a curiosity about, business and life in America.
Now he's got that opportunity, and we're excited to work with him.

Volkswagen Group of America will welcome Michael Horn as its new CEO.
So why would the automaker choose a German native and Wolfsburg veteran, Michael Horn, as the new CEO of Volkswagen Group of America, to succeed Jonathan Browning, 54, who is leaving at the end of the year?
Horn, 51, knows that world well. He has worked for Volkswagen AG since 1990 and as head of global after sales since 2009, before which he was head of European sales. Prior to that, as head of sales and marketing for Volkswagen's premium vehicles, he helped to launch the Phaeton luxury sedan and Touareg luxury SUV.
Horn is familiar with the United States, having earned a graduate degree here.
