The new president of Kia Motors is long-time Kia designer, Peter Schreyer.
Online PR News – 05-January-2013 – Montgomery, AL – Brewbaker Kia is proud to welcome Peter Schreyer to the president’s seat of Kia Motors. Schreyer has been with the Kia team as a designer for six years now and is the first non-Korean president to be appointed in the history of the company.
Schreyer has a huge legacy with Kia Motors, even having only joined the team six years ago back in 2006. In his short term with the company thus far, Schreyer has helped to establish the brand as the fastest growing car company in the United States. He has also been instrumental in developing the very distinct brand image that has made Kia incredibly recognizable on the market. Kia’s appointment of design-specialist Schreyer demonstrates the company’s commitment to innovative design all across the board.
Specifically, Schreyer has worked in transforming some of the world’s best-known vehicles. His design work includes creating several Kia successes, including the new Sportage, the cee’d family and other South Korean models, the Rio, the K7, the Picanto, and the Optima. Just before his appointment to the presidency, Schreyer was finishing up his work on the all-new 2013 Carens, which will hit the scene in South Korea some time later this year.
Schreyer’s vast experience is not limited to his work with Kia. Before 2006, Schreyer worked extensively with Volkswagen. Some of his notable designs include work on the Audi TT, the A3, and the A6 in the late nineties. He was also very uniquely involved with the development of the Volkswagen New Beetle, the EOS, and the Golf. He has also received several notable distinctions. Some of his proudest honors include the Design Award of the Federal Republic of Germany (2003), an honorary doctorate from the Royal College of Art in London (2007), and having been named one of Top Gear Magazine's Men of the Year in 2001.
Brewbaker Kia happily extends congratulation to President Peter Schreyer. With this appointment, the staff at Brewbaker anticipates an even greater emphasis on innovative design. Backed by an incredible record, Schreyer is sure to do great things with his presidency, and the staff and customers of Brewbaker Kia wish him the best of luck in his endeavors.
