Short Introduction

Since 1993, Robert Breitbach Consulting has been a retained executive search firm with a focus on the automotive, automobile and (since the formation) e-mobility industries.

With offices in Germany, Spain, Portugal, and Estonia, we specialize on assisting German, European and American companies in the search and selection of their executives and specialists.

About 70% of the search projects contain the keywords: "CEO, Managing Director, Country Manager, Business Development Manager or Expansions Manager". In addition, we have been able to fill many positions in the areas of sales, plant, and production management. Not to forget many significant engineering positions.

We are pleased that you take the time to visit our "News" page. Here we would like to inform you - updated monthly - about selected topics from this industry.

From the Almanac

The term Automotive Industry describes the commerce in which all companies and activities involved in the manufacture of motor vehicles and components take place.

About half an ounce of fuel is needed to start a car.

Currently, Japan is the largest automobile producing and exporting country in the world.

In 2022, more than 66 million units were sold worldwide.

Driving to the moon would take six weeks.

The Toyota Corolla is the best-selling car of all time.

In the United States, more than 93 million people work in car and automobile manufacturing.

Economic Outlook

According to Economist Intelligence Unit, the automotive industry will remain vulnerable to global headwinds in 2024.

This is due to the energy crisis, slower global demand and continued supply-chain disruptions.

The "bright spot" will be the electric vehicles market.
