“Strong finances are paramount. Also and especially in a transformation,” says Dr. Arno Antlitz. As the member of the Board of Management responsible for Finance and Operations, he is a driving force behind the transformation at Volkswagen.

In an interview with Porsche Consulting Magazine, Antlitz talks about financial sustainability, the huge transformation processes taking place in the automotive world, and dealing with risks. He sees new opportunities in the region, but also new competitors for the Group—and he also gives a look into the contents of his wallet.
