Luca de Meo, AUDI AG Board of Management Member for Sales and Marketing, has received the “Eurostar 2014” prize in the “Sales Marketing Executive” category. Through the Eurostar awards, the international industry publication Automotive News Europe celebrates the most successful top managers in the European automotive industry. In its laudation, the jury emphasized that de Meo has successfully pushed Audi’s worldwide sales growth and even exceeded expectations with the strong performance of recent months.
47-year-old de Meo, a native of Milan, collected the award yesterday evening in Paris: “This award is for the whole Audi team. Because our sales success rests on convincing products, a strong brand and a passionate team. Together, we are writing the next chapter of one of the most exciting success stories in our industry. We are making our brand even more international and strengthening Audi’s position in the automotive premier league,” declared Luca de Meo.
AUDI AG has set itself the goal of achieving 1.7 million deliveries to customers this year for the first time ever – despite the challenging environment in certain important sales markets. This figure represents an increase of around 400,000 in comparison to 2011, when the Company delivered around 1.3 million automobiles to customers. After eight months of the current year, and with new records established in all regions of the world, the running total for the year to date is 1,138,700 cars, representing an increase of 10.5%.
Automotive News Europe has awarded the Eurostar annually since 1998. In the words of the jury, the prize acknowledges executives in every area of the automotive industry who have risen above the competition by topping expectations.
