VW Names Jonathan Browning New CEO

Volkswagen isn't leaderless anymore.

Sep 13, 2010

The wait is over. Volkswagen isn't leaderless anymore. Jonathan Browning, 51, has been named President and CEO of Volkswagen Group of America effective October 1, 2010. He is currently responsible for the global directing of the Volkswagen Group's National Sales Companies (NSC).

Jonathan Browning succeeds Stefan Jacoby, who left the company months ago to Volvo. Browning has held numerous executive sales and marketing posts worldwide at General Motors and Ford Motor Company. He was vice president of European sales, service and marketing at the GM Group from '01 to '08, and simultaneously chairman of Vauxhall Motors from '06 to '08, becoming GM vice president of global sales, service and marketing in '08. Browning worked for the Ford Group from '97 to '01, first as executive director of marketing for Ford Europe and then as the global managing director of Jaguar. He moved to the Volkswagen Group only four months ago.

VW's new CEO comes at the perfect time as the company is investing one billion dollars in the new Chattanooga plant. VW will also be launching a unique marketing offensive in the US with cars such as the new Mk6 Jetta.
