For immediate release 6th July 2012
Volkswagen Investing in Top Talent Volkswagen New Zealand today announced a new staff recruitment drive following consistent year on year growth in the New Zealand automotive sector. A serious market player, Volkswagen is investing heavily in its human capital to ensure the trend continues.
Volkswagen New Zealand's General Manager, Tom Ruddenklau, is serious about growth and says, "It's important for the brand that we bring on board the very best talent during this growth phase. We already have fantastic product and we now want the best sales and service organisation in New Zealand to match the product."
The key appointments Ruddenklau intends to make include a National Sales Manager for Commercial vehicles. Commercial vehicles, in particular the Amarok Ute, have posted an impressive 19% growth in sales YTD, defying recent market decline. Supporting the Commercial role will be a Business Sales Specialist, who will target the very important SME market, which represents a serious opportunity for Volkswagen. A specialised Dealer Development Manager is also needed to focus on broadening the representation of the Volkswagen dealer network, while increasing the sophistication of the retail experience.
In additional, a Product Specialist role will be established to enable the product team to continue to bring to New Zealand compelling and competitive product, such as the Polo, which now retails for $25,750 and the soon to be released new Model Golf. "Product positioning, specification and price are at the core of our growth strategy," comments Ruddenklau.
Both Marketing Co-Coordinator and Office Assistant roles are also in the final stages of appointment this week.
Ruddenklau sums up the company's recent success, "Our business is pretty simple; it's about good product and really good people and our new recruits will be rewarded by a unique opportunity to work with an iconic global brand and help deliver serious growth in New Zealand."
