NICK REILLY, president and CEO-designate of the new company emerging from the bankrupt Daewoo Motor Co., talked with Automotive News Europe's James Treece and Oles Gadacz.
You acquired Daewoo sales units in several European countries. What are your plans for the countries that aren't part of the deal?
In other parts of western Europe, some countries are covered by distributor arrangements. We would look at those, with potential of entering into new arrangements with those distributors.
How long will that take?
It depends on what we find and how quickly we can get the organization stabilized. That usually takes investment. Hopefully, there will be some countries where we can enter into agreements with distributors very quickly that are there already. Some countries may be a matter of months. Other countries will be longer, quite a bit longer.
