The CEO of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars himself flew into the country to personally inaugurate the luxury brand\'s Philippine dealership on 5th Avenue corner 26th Street in Bonifacio Global City. Torsten Müller-Ötvös attended tonight\'s opening of British Bespoke Automobiles\' temporary showroom. A permanent showroom is in the works and is expected to be fully operational by next year.
\"I am delighted to celebrate the inauguration of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Manila in person,\" said Müller-Ötvös. \"The arrival of Rolls-Royce in the Philippines signifies our belief in this country\'s economy and demonstrates the desire from our discerning customers in this region for the ultimate in super-luxury. Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has been well-received since the dealership appointment in June, and we are pleased to display in the new facility the first Phantom Series II Extended Wheelbase in the country.\"
Müller-Ötvös, who worked at BMW as a trainee in 1988, was joined by other Rolls-Royce executives: global sales and marketing director Jolyon Nash, global communications director Richard Carter, Asia-Pacific regional director Paul Harris, and emerging markets general manager for Asia Herfried Hasenoehrl. They were hosted by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Manila president Willy Tee Ten.
