Volkswagen’s U.S. CEO Leaves Suddenly After ‘Mutual Agreement’

Michael Horn, leader of the Volkswagen brand in the U.S., abruptly left the automaker as its American sales continue to fall following an emissions-test cheating scandal. The decision was mutual and Horn, 54, will be replaced for now by executive Hinrich Woebcken, the company said in a statement. Horn became the brand’s U.S. CEO in January 2014 and improved dealer relations so much that when the years of cheating came to light in September 2015, independent retailers lobbied for him to remain on the job and said his removal would be “catastrophic.”
