CHIEF: Tim Tozer, of Vauxhall
Tim Tozer has been appointed the new Chairman and Managing Director of Vauxhall Motors.
Mr Tozer, who also becomes CEO of Opel Ireland, will take over from Duncan Aldred, who is becoming the US Vice-President of Sales, Service and Marketing at Buick-GMC.
He most recently held the position of CEO at Autobinck Holding NV, in The Hague, and will join on Monday.
Karl-Thomas Neumann, President of General Motors Europe, said: “Tim brings a wealth of motor industry experience to the Opel/Vauxhall organisation, a strong understanding of the sales and marketing functions and a wide knowledge of both operational and strategic aspects of the business.
“Vauxhall is an exceptional performer in the UK industry and we look forward to Tim building on the strong foundations already developed by Duncan Aldred and his team.”
