Statement

For me, the automobile is tradition, enthusiasm, passion and never-ending love - but also a sense of responsibility towards the earth and its resources. I am looking forward to contributing my experience and independent opinion to the expert jury of AUTOBEST I think, it is a very interesting time for the car industry right now. It’s not only about inventing new technologies. The big challenge is also, to make the costumer accepting and understanding new technologies. This is why I support AUTOBEST as a member of the Jury. AUTOBEST is dedicated to the costumers needs. It is an independent organisation which is focussed on the costumer.
