We discuss the carmaker's contemporary, thoughtful approach Alain Visser seems, at first, like more of a fashion CEO than the head of one of the newer and more interesting automobile brands. His relaxed and open-minded attitude, a sneaky grin and Cole Haans tied with brightly colored shoelaces all set him apart from the other major car brand CEOs reading from teleprompters at the 2019 Shanghai …
