LOS ANGELES, Dec. 28 (UPI) -- David Zuchowski will be promoted to president and chief executive officers of Hyundai Motor America, the Korean automaker said.

Zuchowski, currently executive vice president of sales, will replace outgoing John Krafcik effective Jan. 1.

"I am both humbled and excited to lead Hyundai Motor America into the next chapter by continuing to build on John's great legacy, and focusing on what matters most -- building the highest quality, safest and most diverse fleet of models that customers love," Zuchowski said in a written statement issued Friday.

Zuchowski, who began his career with Ford in 1980, takes over the executive suite in Los Angeles as Hyundai has been enjoying increased sales in the United States, South Korea's Yonhap news agency said.
