Article by Christian Andrei, on January 19, 2012

Jan Utermarck has been named head of car sales for the VW brand in the former Soviet states, Africa and Middle East effective February 1. He has been with the Volkswagen Group for 16 years. He currently oversees the Group's worldwide parts logistics network. He will be replacing Hans-Heiner Tueting, who has been named Volkswagen de Mexico's board member for marketing, sales and service in November.

Utermarck joined the VW Group in 1996, heading a range of spare parts distribution projects prior to becoming chief of parts logistics at the automaker's central depot in Kassel, Germany, from 2001 to 2003.

In 2004, he transferred to Skoda to oversee VW brand's worldwide parts and accessories business. Three years later, he returned to the VW Group to coordinate the global launch of vehicle components. In 2010, he headed the worldwide coordination of the Group's parts logistics network. In his new position, he will be reporting to Christian Klinger, who heads the VW Group's sales.

Tueting started his career in VW Group 32 years ago in the commercial vehicle division. He held various roles in senior sales prior to becoming head of European commercial vehicle sales in 2007. The next year, he was named head of VW brand car sales for the former Soviet states, Africa and Middle East.
