Ultimately he is a BMW man and he is working his way up the corporate ladder. If he ends up back in Munich, his promotion may benefit Alpina in the long run. Far better that the Munich heirarchy have someone on the inside who is sympathetic and enthusiastic towards Alpina than ignorant of it?
I agree - it's hopefully a big step forward in the BMW corporation for Kris.Good points below that iquoted from you. I would love to see it also as well as a (big) step up the BMW corporate ladder. From BMW Protection to ALPINA and then to Husqvarna and then back to ALPINA where he belongs... :grinyes: Or within BMW Group 4-wheelers kinggf I was surprised to see that he have worked at Alpina from 2002, he missed a decade by a year or so.
I think Kris is apart from the owners one of the best brand ambassadors I have ever met and especially when it comes to BMW and / or Alpina. He has the knowledge about everything and still can convince you that ALPINA always does it the right way.
