Reports suggest that the news of Durheimers departure has been taking the rounds from some weeks now. Previous reports suggested that Audi Sport boss Winkelmann would take on the position, and take charge of the British company. However, that’s not the case. Bentley, Porsche and Bugatti form part of their parent company, Volkswagen’s premium car division.
Rumours also suggest that Stephan Winkelmann will take the position of president at Bugatti. Coming back to Bentley, Hallmark was on the Bentley board in a position responsible for global sales and marketing. Interestingly, he had taken on the executive vice-president position for Volkswagen of America. He also took on the position of regional director for Volkswagen Asia.
At the moment, the Volkswagen Group has declined to comment on the same.
