Walter de’ Silva to lead VW Group’s design

According to Italian magazine Quattroruote Walter de’ Silva is going to become the Head of Design of the whole VW Group, following the recent company reorganization.


The reorganization, dictated by Martin Winterkorn, Chairman of Volkswagen AG since 1 January 2007, will break up the two existing poles (Volkswagen-Skoda-Bentley and Audi-Lamborghini-Seat).

In the future each brand will have its own strategy and its own design director. According to unofficial rumors Walter de’ Silva will be the Group’s global design coordinator.
