Hyundai chief named top CEO in Asian auto industry


Chung Mong-koo

Hyundai Motor Group Chairman Chung Mong-koo was chosen as the top CEO in Asia’s auto industry on Monday by U.S. magazine Automotive News for the second straight year.

The magazine announces an annual list of auto industry “all stars” based on their performance from July to June.

“Through sheer force of will, Chung, 73, has transformed Hyundai and Kia from scoffed-at also-ran brands into global powerhouses that have rivals - both Japanese and American - on the ropes,” it said.

“What’s more, Chung did it through painstaking attention to quality, technology and design, not by simply chasing raw volume.”
