Jaguar Land Rover Joachim Eberhardt to Keynote Economic Club of Chicago Luncheon


Jaguar Land Rover North America President and CEO Joachim Eberhardt will keynote the Economic Club of Chicago (ECC) Luncheon, a cornerstone event of the Chicago Auto Show’s Media Preview, on Feb. 7. The ECC hosts its annual luncheon for members, comprised of leaders at the top of their profession, during the Chicago Auto Show’s Media Preview.

Eberhardt is responsible for Jaguar Land Rover’s North American operations including sales, service and marketing in the United States and Canada. He came to Jaguar Land Rover North America with more than 25 years of global industry and retail experience, including executive leadership sales, marketing and service roles at Chrysler Group, DaimlerChrysler UK, Mercedes-Benz U.S.A. and Daimler-Benz AG.

“We look forward to a tremendous Chicago Auto Show this year as we debut the new Range Rover Evoque, an SUV built for consumers who live in great cities with often challenging weather conditions,” says Eberhardt.

Founded in 1927 to serve as a forum for Chicago’s business community, the ECC is one of Chicago’s finest business groups and has had a decade-long association with the Chicago Auto Show. The ECC has grown to become a premier institution, providing elite members of the business world with a platform to express and discuss economic, business and social issues.

Past Chicago Auto Show Media Preview ECC Luncheon speakers include Bill Ford, Dan Ammann, Jim Press, Henrik Fisker, Ralph Gilles, Jonathan Browning, José Muñoz and Yoshi Inaba. Last year, Hinrich Woebcken, CEO of the North America Region, Volkswagen and president and CEO of Volkswagen Group of America, Inc., was the guest speaker at the ECC Luncheon.

The ECC Luncheon is open to all media attending the Media Preview.
