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.

GROUP CEO: Norbert Reithofer

BMW CEO<br /><br />Norbert Reithofer has no intention of relinquishing BMW Group's title as the world's top-selling premium automaker. As the global economic crisis hit hard in late 2008, the BMW CEO moved aggressively to cut production and costs to keep the group profitable. For successfully keeping BMW in the black and on top in premium sales while simultaneously developing greener technology, Norbert Reithofer is our 2010 Group CEO Eurostar.
