In the whole scheme of his lengthy career with the Volkswagen Auto Group, Porsche CEO Matthias Müller has only served in that capacity for a comparatively short time: 5 years, out of a 36 year-long career with VAG.
Yet, he’s already moving up the ladder again, as Autoblog reports.
To get into the specifics, Porsche CEO Matthias Müller will soon begin to serve as a member of the VAG management board, in a new position which will have him overseeing relations between Audi, Bentley, Bugatti, Lamborghini, and Porsche. The automotive news site doesn’t have any indication yet whether Mr. Müller will continue to serve in his current position as CEO of Porsche, as well.
While the board at VAG has clearly taken a liking to the executive, Porsche CEO Matthias Müller, now 61, has previously indicated that he has no interest in replacing VAG CEO Martin Winterkorn when he retires in 2016. He reiterated to German news outlet Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung that “it’s no solution to put a 63-year-old at the head of Volkswagen.”
Everybody has to hang up their hat sooner or later.
