This guy is indeed very lucky and talented in marketing, he gained recognition very fast within these years, sure it is a lost to Schaeffler USA. Schaeffler's business in USA is doing extremely good at a rate of more than 5% a year, without Hanvey wont be affecting too much, but its certain there will be another talent taking over his place to continue the Schaeffler spirit and business strategy.
