Citroën has appointed Jeremy Smith as new head of commercial vehicles and business sector operations, taking over from Scott Michael, who is leaving to join Motability as conversions and adaptations relationship manager.
Currently head of sales programmes for Citroën in the UK, Smith (51) brings 21 years’ experience with the brand to his new role.
He has worked in a variety of fleet and retail sales roles, as well as finance, product marketing and retail group positions. Based at Citroën UK’s Coventry headquarters, Jeremy will work closely with Gillian Blair, Denis Golden, Andrew Hibbs and Jeff Rodger – the field-based team of regional business centre managers – and a new commercial vehicle and business programmes manager. This is a new position and an appointment will be announced shortly.
Smith said: "LCVs and our business centre network are playing a key role in Citroën’s growing success with fleet operators and small, medium enterprises, which are the backbone of the UK economy.
"Citroën LCV sales for January have seen the brand take a record market share in the up to 3.5 tonne GVW sector and we will be launching new products and services in our business centre network to maintain this progress."
