Jaguar Land Rover UK has appointed Andrew Jago as general manager, fleet and business.
He has recently returned from international assignment in Germany where he was sales director of the Europe importer region.
Since joining Jaguar Land Rover in 2012, Jago has also held management positions in global product marketing and North America operations.
Prior to JLR, his automotive career began at a Ford retailer in Wiltshire, followed by 15 years in sales and marketing roles at Toyota (GB) and Toyota Motor Corporation in Japan.
Jago said: “JLR is ideally positioned to service the needs of fleet and business customers in the premium market.
“We continue to invest in new models, technologies and services at an unprecedented level, with a fleet and business team working tirelessly to become trusted advisers to our customers.”
In particular, he said the company, which in July announced plans to build electrified cars in the UK, is well placed to benefit from the Government’s decision to change benefit-in-kind tax rates from 2020/21
Jago added: “The changes to BIK favours battery electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles.
“This presents immediate opportunities for our business and is aligned to our powertrain strategy.
“We are committed to offering electrified variants across the JLR range.
“In the past five years, the Jaguar model range has more than doubled from just three nameplates to seven.
“Where XF was traditionally our core fleet proposition, the addition of XE, E-Pace, F-Pace and I-Pace has further cemented the appeal of Jaguar to fleet and business customers.
“Unsurprisingly, fleet demand for our I-Pace all-electric vehicle continues to ramp up with the BIK reduction to 0% in the next tax year.”
