That was Gerard Richter (VP of //M).^ They've got an article on Insideline about that.
I think the move to FI is a necessary one. Look at AMG's bi-turbo V12, it's a beast. The (unfair) comparo between the M6 and SL65 on Insideline had the M6 beaten into a pulp. Either BMW increases their engine size like crazy, or they slap some turbos. Otherwise, the competition is just gonna leave them behind.
