The Chief Executive Officer of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, Torsten Müller-Ötvös, has been named winner of the Superluxury CEO category for the second year running at the Eurostars 2020 Awards.
Awarded by leading professional industry journal Automotive News Europe, the prestigious Eurostars Awards recognise automotive industry executives who have ‘stood out from their rivals by exceeding expectations’.
Announcing their decision, the judges cited the marque’s consistent profitability under the helm of Müller-Ötvös since he was made CEO in 2010, and that his greatest success has been to remake Rolls-Royce for the modern era without losing sight of the brand’s heritage.
New Ghost, the most technologically advanced Rolls-Royce yet, was launched earlier this year. Ghost succeeds the most successful product in the marque’s 116-year history and reflects ‘Post Opulent’ design philosophy, rejecting superficial expressions of wealth. Response to the new model from customers, the media and enthusiasts alike has been overwhelmingly positive.
