Jeremy Hicks leaves Audi UK

Audi director Jeremy Hicks has left the company after almost exactly six years in his role.

Hicks took up his position at Audi in August 2005 and has presided over a significant level of growth in volume, with the brand reaching almost 100,000 units in the UK in 2010 compared with 77,000 units at the end of 2004.

A statement from Audi UK said: "Jeremy Hicks, director of Audi UK is to leave Volkswagen Group UK to take up a position with another company. Jeremy made a significant contribution to the growth of the Audi brand in the UK and his leadership and inspiration will be missed. Information on his successor will be announced in due course."

Until a new director is appointed, the Audi brand will be overseen by Robin Woolcock, currently managing director of Volkswagen Group in the UK, but who will give way to Simon Thomas from September 1.

Woolcock will be taking up a new role within Volkswagen, while Thomas joins from Nissan Europe.
