The head of Audi South Africa will leave the country at the end of August 2020 before stepping into a new position at Audi Sport in Germany.

SA-born Trevor Hill assumed the top job at Audi South Africa at the start of June 2017. Now, more than three years later, Hill’s contract will come to an end on 31 August.

Interestingly, he will return to Audi’s global headquarters in Ingolstadt to take up a new position in the Audi Sport division from 1 September 2020.

Audi SA says Hill has been “instrumental” in its local success over the past three years, “expertly” navigating the brand through difficult times.

“Trevor has always been an excellent team player and an ardent ambassador to the Audi brand,” said Mike Glendinning, sales and marketing director for Volkswagen Group South Africa.

“On behalf of the board of management of Volkswagen Group South Africa, we would like to thank him for his contribution to the Audi brand in the local market and wish him well in his new assignment,” Glendinning added.

VW Group SA has yet to announce a successor.
