Hyundai chairman Chung Eui-sun has been picked as industry leader of the year by U.S. magazine Automotive News.
Each year, the venerable car magazine selects around 30 "All-Stars" in the global car industry and one of them is crowned "Industry Leader."
Past picks include Sergio Marchionne, who led Fiat Chrysler, Mary Barra, the CEO of General Motors, and Ford chairman Bill Ford.
Automotive News said that under Chung, Hyundai changed from a "fast follower" to an industry pioneer and is "putting the 'new' in new mobility with global leadership in a slew of tomorrow's technologies."
Chung said the honor comes "in recognition of the entire [Hyundai] family and partners all around the world who have worked so hard and devoted themselves to making sure that we achieve our vision of smart, sustainable mobility and progress for humanity."
