I Sleep29 Sep 2006
NDRInfo radio this morning broadcast a short profile of Volkswagen brand chairman Wolfgang Bernhard, the cost-cutting manager who formerly worked for Chrysler in the US. He's apparently very dry and businesslike. When asked the difference between working in the US and in Germany, he replied:
In Germany I am called Dr. Bernhard, in the US I was called Wolfgang. Otherwise the problems are just the same.
An attempt to make the interview more personal failed. "How do you relax in your spare time?"
