Johan de Nysschen has apparently stepped down as president of Audi of America after 7 years of heading up VW's premium brand on these shores. Throughout de Nysschen's tenure here with Audi the brand has seen steady growth and a long string of record sales.
No reason was given for his departure, but Automotive News http://www.autonews.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20120601/OEM02/120609978/1295/audis-u-s-chief-de-nysschen-says-he-is-leaving is reporting that it had nothing to do with the recent management changes back at the home office in Germany. Evidently he has received a better offer from somewhere else.
It will be interesting to see where he lands next. Acura is one possibility as Honda's premium division tries to find a direction for itself while Lincoln might be another possibility. I'm sure we won't have to wait long.
