Cornelia Schneider, 54, will join Hyundai on Sept. 17 as vice president in charge of operations of the carmaker’s global motor studios, the “space marketing” and preparations of various motor shows and other exhibitions, the company said in a statement.
In space marketing, she is expected to draw up strategies for showrooms and other places allocated for Hyundai vehicles, a spokesman said.
