Groupe Renault UK has hired Stephen Whitcombe as its head of brand for Pro+ Commercial Vehicles.
His promotion follows a year in a regional director role for the Groupe, before which he spent three years as head of total customer experience, network engagement.
Whitcombe said: "Not only have we just launched New Master and New Trafic, Renault continues to lead the way with its range of all-electric ZE products, from the Twizy Cargo through to the New Master ZE.
"With such a diverse line-up the Pro+ Commercial Vehicle operation continues to deliver products that continue to have strong appeal to businesses and trades, and we are looking forward to building on the division’s considerable success over the past year as we accelerate into 2020."
Whitcombe joined Groupe Renault UK in 1998 as a graduate trainee having gained a degree in management studies from the University of Bradford.
He started out as a controller in the sales finance and network motivation programmes before moving across to the Renault-Nissan Alliance for two years.
He returned to Renault Groupe in 2004, rising through the management ranks in sales and marketing, customer experience and network quality and training, before taking his most recent role as regional director in January 2019.
