Audi CEO Rupert Stadler confirms management reshuffle

Article by Christian Andrei, on May 21, 2012

As you may know already, we told you that Bentley CEO will go to Audi due to the restructuring of the company’s board but nothing was officially confirmed… until today. Audi CEO Rupert Stadler officially confirmed in an interview with a German newspaper that the company’s board will be restructured. Apparently, this move will be made in order to be sure that the firm will hit its 2020 sales target as Audi doesn’t want to risk anything.

The first rumors regarding the board reshuffle came after Audi bought Ducati, back in April. According to Rupert Stadler, Ducati will play a very important role in the development of forward-looking mobility concepts.

Stadler also added that Audi wants to encourage more young women join the company as he told the reporters that a board post is not related to sex, but competence. If you remember, the next GM CEO could also be a women, according to the media reports, which means that Audi might follow the American manufacturer which struggles to take on Toyota (again) and become world’s largest manufacturer.
