From this September, Chris Greentree will become the new CEO at NNG LLC, a global automotive software supplier. The new executive officer has an in-depth knowledge of the global automotive software market, including related trends. He also brings extensive marketing and sales experience, as well as deep technical expertise.
Chris Greentree grew up in Philadelphia where, from an early age, he helped his father in the family-run repair garage. Cars and driving have always been his passion, and as Chris is fond of saying; “motor oil flows in his veins”.
He studied mechanical engineering in Pennsylvania, and then, planning to get closer to the commercial side of the automotive industry, he earned an Executive MBA. This prompted a move from engineering management to product management, product marketing, sales, and general management.
For 20 years, he managed global teams at Honeywell Transportation Systems, working in the United States, France, China, and Switzerland. He then joined one of Germany’s biggest automotive software suppliers (Elektrobit) as a board member and EVP of global sales to stabilize and reorganize the Key Account Management and Product Sales teams, creating a world class organization.
I look forward to the new position and have high expectations. I see great prospects for the company, and I am convinced that NNG’s historical success, as well as the expertise available in the company, offer enormous potential for the future. The automotive industry is facing many challenges, but I consider these an important opportunity, both for the company and myself; an opportunity to make NNG both a valued thought-leader and a prosperous automotive player.said Chris Greentree on the occasion of his appointment.
