Structural Changes in Porsche Ukraine Management


Mister Josef Graf (1965, Austria) has been appointed Managing Director of Porsche Ukraine on February 1, 2015, having replaced Mr. Thomas Ruschitzka who since then works in Porsche Holding headquarters in Salzburg and is the Wholesale and Project Director for one of Porsche Holding's most important regions.

Such changes in the Importer's senior management is a crucial step to ensure the company's sustainable development, enhance its efficiency in the current period of automotive market challenges, and help to achieve new ambitious goals, given Mr. Graf's long-standing successful work experience in Ukraine.

In all, Mr. Graf has been working for Porsche Holding for over 30 years.

Headed by Mr. Graf, Porsche Finance Group dynamically developed, continuously extending its range of services. Since 2011, the company has ranked among the top three funders of vehicles for legal entities and individuals according to the Association "Ukrainian Union of Lessors", and in December 2014 Porsche Finance Group led the list of financial companies in the best Ukrainian employer rating presented by the Capital 500 journal.
