Rudi Kuchta is “Busbuilder of the Year 2013”

This year’s Busworld in Kortrijk – the leading bus trade fair in Europe – has seen Rudi Kuchta (47) crowned “Busbuilder of the Year 2013”. The prize is a personal award presented to individuals of outstanding merit in the industry every two years. Kuchta, who is Senior Vice President of the Product & Sales Bus unit, won the judges over with his long-term commitment in the bus in-dustry.

In addition to unbroken service for a bus company, the criteria for the award include visionary thinking and implementation of forward-looking projects. Kuchta started his career at Neoplan back in 1992 and has headed the Bus sales unit at MAN Truck & Bus AG since 2009.

“This award fills me with pride – it is confirmation of MAN Truck & Bus’s suc-cessful work. I would like to thank the colleagues and employees who dem-onstrate dedication and great commitment every day when developing and building our unique buses,” said Kuchta when presented with the prize.
