FRANKFURT, Germany, Jan. 12, 2022 – Hyundai Motor Group Executive Chair, Euisun Chung, has today been honored with the MotorTrend Person of the Year award, having secured the number one position in MotorTrend’s esteemed 2023 Power List.
The MotorTrend Power List ranks the 50 most influential people in the global automotive industry each year. During the past five years, Executive Chair Chung has risen progressively from his first appearance on the power list at No. 12 in 2018 to No. 5 in 2022 and now No. 1 in 2023.
MotorTrend named Chung ‘Person of the Year’ for “leading the Group into a new age” and highlighted the exceptional caliber of the vehicles developed under Chung’s watch, stating: “The vehicles coming out of the Group are notable for their eye-catching design, quality, clever packaging, and good value – and they are proving increasingly difficult to beat.”
This latest critical acclaim follows several MotorTrend awards for the Group’s models, which include the Genesis G90 being awarded the 2023 Car of the Year. Previously, the Genesis GV70 being named MotorTrend SUV of the Year in 2022. “Genesis and the Group have been hitting balls out of the park repeatedly,” asserted MotorTrend.
In addition to his role in setting the course for the Group’s current success, MotorTrend praised Chung’s vision of the future and recognized his “big-picture thinking and ability to provide solutions traditionally regarded beyond the bounds of the automotive industry”.
“As Executive Chair, Chung is putting his stamp on the company’s future. His grasp of where the world and the industry are headed, combined with a desire to make the planet a better place, spurs a broader mission to become a leader in electric vehicles and advanced mobility,” observed MotorTrend.
Commenting on the depth and reach of Chung’s vision, MotorTrend added: “In that sense, he certainly pushes the entire Group to new levels. The man and his vision, and the enterprise that his company is becoming, appear loud and clear. For his vision and leadership, then, Euisun Chung is our 2023 MotorTrend Person of the Year.”
Also ranked on MotorTrend’s Power List are Luc Donckerwolke, President and Chief Creative Officer of Hyundai Motor Group (3); Jose Muñoz, President and Global Chief Operating Officer of Hyundai Motor Company (10); SangYup Lee, Executive Vice President and Head of Hyundai Global Design Center (28); and Karim Habib (44), Executive Vice President and Head of Kia Global Design Center.
Previous recognition for Chung’s pioneering thinking includes the Executive Chair being named Newsweek’s ‘Visionary of the Year’ at its inaugural World’s Greatest Auto Disrupters event in 2022 and being honored with the coveted Issigonis Trophy at the 2021 Autocar Awards.
Speaking earlier in January, Chung underlined his continued commitment to the success of the Group and urged everyone within the organization to spare no effort to ensure the delivery of the best possible products and services for its customers.
“We must take on challenges based on trust, and the positive results must lead to even stronger trust. No great product or technology is complete without the trust of our customers,” affirmed Chung. “Quality is a priority for all of us. From product planning to design, production, sales, and after-sales maintenance, all teams and employees must place quality and the customer as the top priority. We must all go above and beyond to earn the respect and loyalty of our customers.”
The 2023 MotorTrend Power List is available online today and will be published in the March print issue.
