Taylor, who was general sales and marketing director for Vauxhall, will now be working across the Stellantis portfolio, which includes Alfa Romeo, Abarth, Citroën, DS Automobiles, Fiat, Fiat Professional, Jeep and Peugeot.
He will report directly to Paul Willcox and functionally to Alison Jones, who was appointed country manager UK and senior vice-president for Peugeot, Citroen, DS Automobiles, Fiat, Fiat Professional, Abarth, Jeep and Alfa Romeo in March.
Paul Willcox, Stellantis senior vice president and managing director for Vauxhall, said: “James brings a wealth of sales experience to this new role. I want to thank him warmly for his success over 22 years at Vauxhall Motors and wish him well for further achievements with this new group position.”
Alison Jones, Stellantis senior vice president and country manager UK for Alfa Romeo, Abarth, Citroën, DS Automobiles, Fiat, Fiat Professional, Jeep and Peugeot, added: “I look forward to James, in this newly created Stellantis role, working alongside our Brand MD's to drive our total fleet performance and our customer service, propositions and relationships.”
Taylor said he was “delighted” to be heading up this new division for Stellantis in the UK.
“With a wide and diverse range of car and van models across our nine brands in the UK, including fully-electric and PHEV, I look forward to developing further our B2B sales to our customers bringing them efficiencies and benefits for their businesses,” he added.
