Former Skoda CEO Winfried Vahland reportedly leaving over differences in US strategy
The newly named North America chief, Dr. Winfried Vahland, is leaving his new position at VW AG which he was due to start in November, Automotive News reports.
...
Vahland, 58, was appointed to the newly created position during the VW AG board meeting on Sept. 25 of this year, which saw a significant number of executive reshufflings following the departure of VW CEO Dr. Martin Winterkorn earlier that week.
...
Vahland is a 25-year veteran of VW AG, and has led the Czech Skoda division globally since 2010.
Vahland is reportedly leaving the post due to differences of opinion over the company's U.S. strategy.
...
Vahland will therefore not be taking up the position of overall responsibility for the North American Region (NAR). Differing views on the organization of the new Group region have led to this decision; this decision is expressly not related to current events on the issue of diesel engines."
Vahland's departure will likely create further headaches for the newly created North American Region for Volkswagen AG, comprised of Canada, the U.S. and Mexico. Namely, his departure will deprive VW AG of an experienced executive who contributed to Skoda's tremendous global success over the last several years, as well as Volkswagen's growth in China in the mid-2000s. Vahland was picked for the position with the hope of steering the company's Canadian and U.S. operations out of the diesel crisis and overseeing the company's recall strategy in the region.
