Fleet news logo

Citroen UK has appointed Arnaud Leclerc as its new managing director for the UK and Ireland, with effect from June 1, 2014.

Leclerc joins from Citroen Scandinavia where he has been managing director since July 2011.

He also held a number of key roles earlier in his career, including managing director - Citroen Croatia and regional co-ordinator for the Citroen brand in Europe.

He started his career in the motor industry in 1997 and joined PSA Peugeot Citroën in March 2001.

Leclerc replaces Linda Jackson who was promoted to global head of Citroen at the start of May.

PSA Peugeot Citroen revealed its 'Back in the Race' plans earlier this year to cut models from both the Peugeot and Citroen model lineup by almost half.

Leclerc will help implement the plans in the UK as well as guide Citroen's DS brand to become a separate franchise.

    Lets hope he can install a more fleet friendly service...I for one am fed up of the continual battle to get this particular manufacturer to accept liability for vehicles that have got genuine faults......although I won't be holding my breath !!!

    I hope Arnaud Leclerc can sort out Citroen's new car distribution they are atrocious. I buy a new car every 3 years this is the first time I have brought a Citroen and already I am regretting it. No matter how hard the dealership or customer relations try to provide a good service, Distribution cant commit to a delivery date, very poor from a customer point of view.

    WE bought a new Citroen 12 weeks ago. Unfortunately we were burgled three weeks later. Our car was stolen, fortunately we got it back a few days later. We have now been waiting 8 weeks for replacement locks and unable to use the car. We have been given one date after another, contacted customer relations and all we get are apologies. Suggested DHL as a means of shipment but this is not company policy. They are quite happy to let us pay hundreds of pounds to rent a car because of their inefficiency but won't DHL the part! Whatever happened to the customer in all this? Meanwhile we are paying to rent a car as it is not covered by our insurance. It would appear that Citroen just couldn't care less. Never buy a Citroen.
