Ready for some automotive industry soap opera?
Last month, VW announced the switching of posts between the then VW North America head Len Hunt and Bentley's numero uno Adrian Hallmark. Apparently unhappy with sagging sales in the U.S. market, Wolfsburg decided to bring in Hallmark to turn things around.
Now, less than a month after the announcement, out comes the news that Len Hunt has resigned from Volkswagen AG for good. VW did not provide any details on Len's departure other than the standard "left to pursue outside business opportunities"...but it makes you wonder if Len "True Brit" Hunt just couldn't swallow being replaced by the 7-years-younger Adrian Hallmark. What will happen next? Nobody knows…but we'll be watching.
