Two top men go in shake-up at Land Rover

ROVER Group, in the week of the Rover 75 launch, is again suffering internal turmoil after a management shake-up at Land Rover has seen managing director Peter Kinnaird and marketing director Jim Campbell leave the company. A Land Rover spokesman said the departures were part of a management restructure and that both the posts had already been filled from within the Rover Group.

Harry Reilly, who has been with the Rover Group for 17 years and most recently as finance director for Rover, has replaced Kinnaird as managing director of Land Rover. The position of marketing director is being filled by Colin Green, previously regional business manager with Land Rover.

Meanwhile, BMW'S restructuring of Rover has led to the resignation of one of its senior managers. Alex Stephenson quit as managing director of the UK car company's powertrain division, which makes engines, - a post which has now been abolished. He was offered alternative employment but chose to leave to spend more time on his other job as chairman of the West Midlands Regional Development Agency.
