Audio – Sad September

September 16, 2008

zuchowski1.jpgUsually, when an automotive executive speaks to a group of reporters (hard-edged though we might all think we are), there’s a lot of nodding, maybe some typing or note-taking or positioning to get that next good question in.

But sometimes, a surprise or two shakes people up a little. Such was the case on Tuesday morning at the Reuters Autos Summit, when Dave Zuchowski, Hyundai’s head of U.S. sales, gave his outlook for September sales for the first 10 days.

Suffice to say, it’s not looking too pretty.

Zuchowski was one of the featured speakers at this year’s summit, which runs through Thursday in Detroit. Next up for summits will be Reuters first Restructuring Summit on Sept. 22-26 in New York and London.
