AUBURN HILLS, MI
- Ross Friedmann has joined Audi of America, Inc. as national commercial accounts manager. Friedmann, based in Chicago, will oversee all sales activities to corporate fleets and fleet leasing companies. In addition, Friedmann will be the contact point for Audi dealer-network fleet sales and marketing activities. He will report to Craig Cheatle, corporate sales manager - North America for Audi of America. “Audi’s fleet program is targeted to upper management and executive selector lists,” said Friedmann. According to Friedmann, Audi has developed an attractive commercial fleet incentive and courtesy delivery program, which will enable it to fully compete in this market. “Close attention and focus on the larger volume fleets will be key to successful growth at Audi,” Friedmann added. “Audi is positioned very well to appeal to the executive fleet client and the mid- and upper-level management selector lists, as well as for execs receiving a vehicle allowance.” Prior to this, Friedmann was manager, national accounts for Subaru of America, where he had worked for the past 12 years.
