Ron Stach, senior vice president of sales at Volkswagen of America, left the automaker on 4, the magazine reported late yesterday.

Spokespeople at VW’s global headquarters in Wolfsburg didn’t return calls seeking comment.

Stach, who joined VW’s North America operations in 2006 and previously worked at Mazda Motor Corp’s division in the region, couldn’t be reached for comment.



VW said last Wednesday that its US sales rose 5.2 percent to 339,676 brand models last year but plunged 19 per cent in December after posting their first monthly drop in 2017 in November.

Stach will be replaced temporarily by Derrick Hatami who joined VW of America last June as executive vice president for sales and marketing, Automotive News reported. — Reuters
