The interesting job of planning which Volkswagen models to bring into the country falls on the shoulders of Mohamed Aslam, our Head of Central Planning, Product & Logistics. Together with his team, Aslam works on bringing the latest products and features into the market while ensuring sufficient inventories are in place - and he takes it all in stride. "When it comes to my career in Volkswagen, it is the product and the people that gives me the most joy. To successfully launch a new model and deliver good service to our customers, is something I am really grateful of."
Here, our product guy talks the finer details of his life.
What led you here to Volkswagen?
I had fond memories of my uncle's Beetle as a kid, it was a unique car. Over the years, I also always had an eye on the Karmann Ghia and admired the Golf GTI for its performance. In 2006, I was headhunted for a job, and the company name was not mentioned till the end of the interview (neither did I ask). The rest I would say, are part of the good memories of my working life so far together with the team, our dealers and the cars.
