The boss of Volkswagen’s ultra-luxury Porsche brand, Matthias Mueller is expected to be named CEO of the German automaker Volkswagen when the company’s board meets Friday.
He would replace Martin Winterkorn, who resigned as CEO on Wednesday after eight years leading the company, according to the Wall Street Journal and the business paper Handelsblatt.
Mueller completed an apprenticeship with VW luxury brand Audi after high school before earning a computer science degree from Munich University of Applied Sciences.
He rejoined Audi in 1978 and has served in various roles with VW since then, including head of product management of the Audi, Lamborghini and Volkswagen brands.
Since 2010, Müller has led the Porsche division to earnings growth fuelled by new products that have broadened its reach without compromising its image as an elite brand.
