After eight years working as the president of Audi US, Johan de Nysschen leaves his position for a new job that is yet to be known. Until the replacement comes, COO Mark Del Rosso will handle the company’s everyday operation. Upon breaking the news to the public, the resignation immediately takes effect.
Many who have heard the news are surprised because Audi has just announced a 10% increase in its sales last month. On a more specific note, the car company sold more than 11,000 units. According to the records, it is the best May for Audi US. It is also their fifth best month in the market, ever.
The 52 year-old Nysschen started working as the boss for Audi US in 2004. Also, he held top positions for the company when it was brought to Japan and South Africa, his native land. During his time, the company was able to see a significant growth in its sales and image awareness. We can remember that Audi became a key player in commercials for Super Bowl. In 2011 alone, Audi’s piece of cake from the luxury market grew from 5.3% to 9.5%.
In his email to the workers for Audi, he explained that the twists and turns that fill up life can bring a person in to an unexpected conjuncture. In this instance, what he believes to happen in real life is happening to him. He also said that Audi has been his car since 1973, and would have never imagined not having Audi in the center of his life.
Nysschen made it clear that his resignation has nothing to do with the reorganization of senior positions in the company. His reason for leaving is related to a realization about the future leadership that Audi needs. He believes that a new leadership will help the company become the most inspirational car brand in the US. According to him, Audi is in a new inflection point in the continuous progress of the brand in the United States and this new tone demands a leadership that has new philosophies and insights that are more appropriate for this new phase.
Although he wanted Audi to win, he needed to secure his life too. He said that he must play according to his strengths and look for a new “construction site.” Such opportunity has been presented to him this time, and he is ready to face new challenges.
It can be recalled that SAE came up with the standards to help consumers in comparing towing ratings of trucks. Consumers often make comparisons before making a purchase but without a standard rate to base on, they may have a hard time finding the right vehicle for them. To address this situation, SAE, in a meeting with manufacturers and suppliers in the towing industry, set a standard aimed at helping customers compare cars, crossovers, and pickups that have a gross weight of 13,000 pounds.
After the J2807 was announced, several truck manufacturers launched recalculations in their fleets to see how they can implement the standard. GM put the towing numbers of its latest Silverado and Sierra under recalculations and found out some adjustments might be needed. Toyota, on the other hand, decided to follow most of the procedures and standards in its 2011 Tundra and Tacoma, as well as its SUV fleet. With Ford, the 2013 Fusion and Escape and other new models were recalculated. The J2807’s effect on Ford’s F-Series pickup is something that analysts are interested in, as they await Ford’s move in this matter. Nissan and Honda are among the manufacturers that are yet to release their plans involving their 2013 line-up but experts don’t expect any major changes in their numbers.
A towing rating standard made by Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) for truck manufacturers has hit a snag. General Motors (GM) recently announced that it is postponing its implementation of J2807, which sets the standard and procedures for towing ratings and gross combined weight ratings. GM said in a statement that it will hold back from implementing J2807 fully until all the other pickup truck manufacturers are following the said standards. The announcement was made after competitor Ford decided not to apply the standards to its entire fleet of pickup trucks before the release of its new models. The release, however, is not expected to happen anytime soon. Ford’s decision is seen as the reason why GM reacted that way. Fast car.
In a statement, GM said that J2807 will not be used in its 2013 model in order to avoid confusion in the part of consumers. The manufacturer believes that following the standards may confuse consumers in comparing vehicles that are also used for trailering. GM competitors will remain using their existing ratings in their latest models and the manufacturer is worried that changing theirs at this time may affect consumers’ purchasing decision in a negative way.
