Vincent Tourette, Groupe Renault UK

Groupe Renault UK has appointed Vincent Tourette as its managing director.

Tourette has worked for the Renault-Nissan Alliance for 23 years.

Most recently, he was with Nissan, based in Tokyo, as vice-president, sales and marketing, with global responsibility for their LCV range (pick-ups, vans and light trucks). 

Previously Tourette has held a variety of commercial roles with Groupe Renault including CEO for the five countries in the Nordic region, marketing director for the Netherlands and, previously in the UK, as general manager for a Renault Retail Group branch and marketing planning manager at Renault UK. 

In his new role as managing director, he will be responsible for Renault and Dacia in UK and Ireland and also the right-hand drive markets of Cyprus and Malta.

He will report to Ken Ramirez, senior vice-president sales and marketing Europe G9, and replaces Paul Flanagan, whose future role within the group will be announced shortly.

Tourette said: “It’s a very exciting time to be coming back to the UK.  I can see that tremendous growth had been achieved in the recent years and I’m sure that there will be more to come with the youngest model range in Europe and more to come with the forthcoming launch this year of the Koleos.”
