Stuttgart/Tokyo. Michael Kirsch (54), currently Managing Director at Porsche Korea, will assume the position as CEO of Porsche Japan as from 1 August 2019. “Michael Kirsch has made a very valuable contribution to the success of Porsche Korea, including all-time record sales in 2018 and a number one position in independent customer satisfaction and service surveys,” says Detlev von Platen, Member of the Executive Board for Sales and Marketing at Porsche AG. “As CEO of Porsche Japan, he will help us to realize our full potential in this important emerging market.”
