VW sales appointment

VOLKSWAGEN Group has appointed Dr Georg Flandorfer as head of group sales in Germany.

Flandorfer is responsible for the sales and marketing activities of all Volkswagen Group brands in the country.

In the newly-created position, he reports to group chairman Dr Bernd Pischetsrieder, who said: 'The appointment is an important building block in the restructuring of the group's sales and marketing organisation. The individual duties of the executives responsible for sales in the various brands are not affected by this decision.'

Flandorfer added: 'By far the majority of dealers in Germany, as elsewhere, already represent more than one group band in separate businesses, and additionally provide services offered by the group, particularly vehicle financing. This needs central control.'
