Saab History had the great opportunity to interview Simon Padian, Saab Automobile’s Brand Design Chief at the 2009 Frankfurt Auto Show earlier this week.

Padian, this year entered his 20th anniversary with Saab as a designer and has seen just about every change in the Saab brand design program beginning with his first mentor, Bjorn Envall who co-designed the Saab 99 with SAAB’s first designer, Sixten Sason.

A thank to Tynan’s Saab & JMK Saab for making this happen as well as Simon Padian for sharing his time with Saab History.
