Pitch Predictor: Porsche

Hi. Saw this news of a new VP Marketing coming to Porsche North America. Though you might find it interesting. Looks like Andre Oosthuizen has been promoted from within. Porsche North America is headquartered in Atlanta.

Here’s what one of his bosses had to say, “During his tenure, Andre oversaw the introduction of major new Porsche model lines, Porsche Centre dealerships and new dealer systems and technologies across multiple markets,” said Detlev von Platen, President and CEO of Porsche Cars North America.  “His achievements significantly increased both volume and segment share. He also created and implemented new experiential consumer marketing programs, built on Porsche heritage and motorsports assets. With this experience in a fast-paced, growing market, he will be an excellent addition to the PCNA team.”

Vroom vroom.


Update: as you know, one new VP Marketing can often mean several pitch opportunities. Here’s a another story that offers up another nugget: that the former VP Marketing of Porsche moved to Jaguar in March of 2011. Better reporting!
