Hyundai-Kia Motor Group Appoints First Non-Korean President

3 Jan

schreyerIf you read our blog on Kia’s being back in the bike business then you already know of Peter Schreyer.  As Kia’s Chief Design Officer Schreyer most recently worked on the K-Velo, the automaker’s nod to the industry in which it got its start.  Schreyer will hang on to that design title but now he’s also been named one of three presidents of the Hyundai-Kia Motor Group, the first non-Korean to hold the position.  You can see his handiwork in not only newer model Kias but also the 1998 New Volkswagen Beetle and the Audo TT.  We’re excited to see what he brings to both Kia and Hyundai in the future!
