SsangYong Motor UK has appointed Nick Laird as managing director, with immediate effect.
The appointment sees Laird assume overall responsibility for SsangYong’s UK operations on a permanent basis, having served as acting managing director since October.
He said: "We have ambitious plans for the future, so this is a genuinely exciting time for the brand in the UK.
"With an array of versatile and quality products on the way, I'm confident that SsangYong will grow substantially in the coming years."
Towards the end of 2017, SsangYong launched the all-new Rexton.
The company expects further sales growth this year with the launch of the all-new Musso pick-up truck, which is based on the same platform as Rexton.
