Bentley Motors, Inc. Announces Headquarters Move to Boston


AUBURN HILLS, Mich., Oct. 5, 2007 -- Bentley Motors, Inc. today announced that it will relocate its North American corporate headquarters to Boston, MA. as part of a strategic realignment of its regional operations.

The move, coupled with a realignment of the Company's North American structure, will provide Bentley with an even sharper focus on its key market and customers and increased cooperation with its central operations in Crewe, England.

Commenting on the changes Stuart McCullough, Member of the Board, Sales & Marketing for Bentley, said, "The U.S. is our biggest market by a considerable margin and we are making these changes now to ensure our long-term viability and success in North America. This move will allow Bentley to stake out its future in a concerted and defined manner, led by our new leadership team of Geoff Dowding and Christophe Georges."

The headquarters relocation is expected to be completed by summer 2008 with Bentley continuing to leverage a number of key services from Volkswagen of America following both brands' moves.

Additional details concerning the move and subsequent North American realignment will be announced in the coming months.
