Paul Willcox has been promoted to lead the UK market at Stellantis, replacing Alison Jones who moves to a global role.
Willcox, currently UK Vauxhall managing director, will have overall responsibility in the UK for the Stellantis brands of Vauxhall, Peugeot, Citroen, DS Automobiles, Fiat, Fiat Professional, Abarth, Jeep and Alfa Romeo.
The change comes as part of a larger management reshuffle at the group.
Jones will be promoted to a global role as senior vice president of Circular Economy and will be reporting to Philippe de Rovira, chief affiliates officer.
In her new role, Jones will give new impetus to the Circular Economy business, which is one of the core pillars of Stellantis’ “Dare Forward 2030” strategic plan with an overall objective to reach €2 billion revenues in 2030.
Carlos Tavares, CEO of Stellantis, said: “The daily challenges and ongoing deep transformation of the automotive industry requires organizational agility and talent at the right place at the right timing across our company.
“After the successful start of Stellantis’ operations, these appointments reflect the bold ambitions of our strategic plan “Dare forward 2030” and will strongly contribute to the transformation path we have already started since Stellantis was formed in January 2021.”
Stellantis restructured its fleet sales operations, earlier this year, to provide improved interaction between its brands, under the leadership of recently appointed UK director for B2B James Taylor.
