Volkswagen's new CEO must tackle this other problem

The latest automotive industry tragedy didn’t occur on a roadway. It happened at Volkswagen when it was discovered that approximately 11 million cars were rigged to evade E.P.A. standards known in the industry as “defeat devices.” The fall out is ongoing, with CEO Martin Winterkorn resigning in the wake of the scandal. On Friday, the automaker announced that Matthias Mueller would become its next CEO. While the former Porsche brand chief will likely spend the bulk of his first years expunging corruption, handling investigations and fixing cars to ensure Volkswagen’s survival, there’s another problem he will need to tackle: the culture of silence.
