Bentley announced today that it is packing its bags and leaving its corporate headquarters from Boston, Massachusetts to the offices of Volkswagen Group of America in Herndon, Virginia as part of a strategic realignment of its regional operations.
“The U.S. is our biggest market and the relocation will allow Bentley to focus our resources on our brand and to take further advantage of synergies with the Volkswagen Group here in the U.S.,” said Christophe Georges, president & COO for Bentley Motors, Inc.
The move is expected to give Bentley a sharper focus on important regions in the U.S. The relocations should be completed by the end of this year.
“We welcome the Bentley team to our Volkswagen Group of America headquarters,” said Jonathan Browning, president and CEO Volkswagen Group of America. “Our greatest strength is the power of our iconic brands across the globe. As each of these brands grows, the supporting administration also needs to grow. By having Audi, VW, Lamborghini and now Bentley in the same location, we can provide that support so each of the brands can continue to focus on its unique position in the marketplace.”
