The 2010 Eurostars have succeeded despite the worst recession in decades. CEO Norbert Reithofer kept BMW Group in the black without sacrificing its commitment to developing greener technology, while CEO Rupert Stadler has Audi on track to achieve record global sales and huge earnings in 2010. The other 11 Eurostar winners chosen by the editors of Automotive News Europe have achieved equally impressive results.
