The Automotive Rising Stars of 2022

By Daniel Müller Klaus Steinmann

The winners of the 12th annual Automotive News Europe Rising Stars Award have finally been announced. The 19 winners were inducted at the award dinner in Prague on the 13th of July. MU are proud to be a partner of the award and honour the young European Automotive Executives who are leading the industry into the future. 

The prestigious Rising Stars Award, organised by Automotive News Europe, recognises young automotive leaders bringing change to the industry. This year’s 19 winners were selected from a pool of over 130 candidates across Europe, of which MU´s Global Automotive Sector Team were involved in screening and assessing. The winners were selected by a jury of delegates from Automotive News Europe, the lead sponsor Capgemini, former Rising Stars and our Global Automotive & Mobility Experts. See the full list of winners here.

The day after the award dinner, Automotive News Europe also held a congress filled with keynote addresses, top-level presentations and panel discussions with experts from Mercedes-Benz, Hyundai, Toyota, Stellantis Group, Polestar etc. Our colleagues Klaus Steinmann, Daniel Müller, Jörg Seitz, Agnes Mink, Davide Muscarà and Jonas Nußbaum took part on the behalf of MU.

MU sends congratulations to this year´s Rising Stars and a special thanks to Automotive News Europe for hosting the award and our co-partner Capgemini.
