Woodcliff Lake, NJ – August 4, 2016… Petter Witt, Executive Vice President, Operations is pleased to announce that Charles Silva will assume the role of Regional Vice President of the Western Region. The appointment was effective as of August 1, 2016.

 

A 24 year veteran of the BMW Group, Charles Silva transitioned to the Western Region one year ago to lead Sales and Marketing after having spent several years in Woodcliff Lake improving the company’s customer orientation, operations, customer satisfaction, and brand loyalty.  Throughout the course of 2016, Charles and the Western Region team have continued to steer BMW’s sales and market share leadership in the highly competitive premium segment.

 

Charles Silva joined the BMW Group in 1992 as an Information Technology Project Manager where he was part of the team that launched the BMW Financial Services division in the United States.  He later moved over to BMW of North America serving in a range of significant positions before leading the team tasked with transforming BMW of North America into a culture of customer orientation. The result was BMW Group’s first-ever product awards in the J.D. Power Initial Quality Study and Core 4 Leadership, a position BMW continues to hold today.

 

Petter Witt, who was previously VP of the Western Region, says Charles brings many strengths to his new role: “Charles is one of those individuals who finds ways to be effective on his very first day on the job. I saw it personally when he joined the Western Region as a Regional Sales and Marketing Manager in September of last year. I look forward to seeing him succeed in his new role leading a very talented team in the Western Region.”
