weeeeeelll not really - I was thinking of another photo, silly me. Werlin is a good answer, he was one of the directors of the Gezuvor firm, but he was not the chap who recieved the directive for Ley once Hitler had asked Ley to start work on bringing the project to life. Its possibly my out of the way oddball interests that are making this hard. I will post the answer later on tonight if no one gets it.

Ok I am going out and so I shall give the answer and as Mike was the nearest maybe he can give you all a question. I am not going to be online much as I am working tomorrow so I could not post or look for a question and hate to hold up the thread. ;)

It was Dr rer.pol. Bodo Lafferentz - SS-Obersturmbannfuhrer and appointed by Dr Robert Ley to head up and organize the company to bring the KdF Wagen dreams of the Fuhrer to reality. I shall find a photo of him when I have time ;)
Regards

Karl Kreutz is a "young" division commander but born in 1909.
My mysterious commander was born in 1913 !
