It looks like the man who will be leading Audi Malaysia is a certain Mr. Immo Buschmann, who according to his LinkedIn profile has been the Managing Director of Audi Malaysia since July 2014.

According to his profile, prior to this new role he was a Regional Director for Asia Pacific with Volkswagen AG for the past four years. He seems to be a marketing man, having held GM of Marketing roles at Audi Australia and Audi Japan in the past, according to his profile.

The new Audi Malaysia company will at the moment be situated in the same building as the Volkswagen Group Malaysia office in Bangsar. There is a newly renovated office on the left side of the lobby. Word is that Audi Malaysia will probably take over the distributor role from DRB-Hicom’s Euromobil, who has been the Audi distributor since February 2010. Euromobil is likely to continue operating as an Audi ‘master dealer’.

The same thing happened to Auto Bavaria in the past – it switched roles from a distributor to a mega dealer for BMWs when BMW Malaysia was established.
