'Ferdinand Piëch not only has ideas, he also helps us to realize them. He sees to it that we are provided with the right environment for our work - be it money, investment in machinery, or quick decisions. He is not a boss who just blows by, leaving ideas behind him. He works with us on realizing those ideas. That is a very positive climate for work.'
Martin Winterkorn, vice president of research and development, Volkswagen AG
