People news: New CEO at Bentley, exits from trade bodies


A host of industry movements announced this week include a new boss at Bentley Motors and the forthcoming departures of the leaders of two industry trade bodies.

Bentley has announced its new chief executive will be Frank-Steffen Walliser, who takes over as brand boss for the Crewe-based luxury carmaker on July 1 after the exit of Adrian Hallmark who jumped ship to join rival Aston Martin.

Walliser has been at Porsche since 1995 in a variety of roles, including head of Porsche Motorsport for a number of years.

He said: “I am approaching this job with great respect and looking forward to having a team in Crewe that has shown impressive performance over the last few years. The continuing transformation of the automotive industry will be a major task for Bentley as well, a task that I am happy to take on with the team.

“I am convinced Bentley will continue to set standards in the luxury segment in the future.”
