With this issue, Automotive News Europe names its first Eurostars. We have created the forum to honor the best and the brightest in the European auto business.
The Eurostars will be a regular feature of Automotive News Europe, timed for the annual autumn auto show in Paris or Frankfurt.
The awards will allow us to identify the men and women who are reshaping the industry.
Our first chief executive of the year is Juergen Schrempp. How could it be otherwise? The deal he initiated with Chrysler may be the most significant in the industry since Daimler merged with Benz.
But talented individuals are making a big impact throughout the industry and we are happy to single them out.
Congratulations to our first Eurostars!
