Allisat has worked for the BMW Group since 2003. He has been
Vice President Purchasing BMW Motorrad since 2008, where he was also responsible for Husqvarna Motorcycles purchasing
operations.

 

Before joining the BMW Group Allisat worked in various
internationally oriented positions in corporate consulting with A.T.Kearney GmbH, Stuttgart and prior to that for Daimler Benz AG,
Stuttgart.

 

After three years of managing Husqvarna Motorcycles, Rainer Thoma
will now be taking up a new position at BMW Group headquarters in
Munich.

 

Since the acquisition of Husqvarna MC by the BMW Group in 2007,
the company has been separated from MV Agusta, a new R&D centre has
been put into operation at the Husqvarna site Cassinetta, production
and spare parts supply has been restructured and the company has pushed
ahead with numerous developments for the Husqvarna Motorcycles product
offensive now starting.

In spite of a difficult global market environment, Husqvarna MC
was able to maintain a stable sales volume from 2008 to 2009 as
compared to its competition. With a sales decrease of only around 3% in
2009, the brand recorded a lower decline than any of its competitors.
