Jaguar announces ex-Renault boss as new CEO

The new Chief Executive Officer of Jaguar Land Rover has been named, succeeding the long-serving Ralf Speth. Thierry Bolloré, who was most recently chief executive of Groupe Renault, will take on the role from 10 September 2020.

Mr Chandrasekaran, Chairman of Tata Sons, Tata Motors and Jaguar Land Rover plc announced the news on Tuesday 28th July 2020 amidst growing rumours within the motor industry as to who would take on the coveted role.

Mr Chandrasekaran said:

“I am delighted to welcome Thierry to Jaguar Land Rover. An established global business leader with a proven track record of implementing complex transformations, Thierry will bring a wealth of experience to one of the most revered positions in the industry.”

Mr Bolloré has extensive expertise in the automotive business, most recently as CEO of Groupe Renault and previously in senior positions at global automotive supplier Faurecia.

Commenting on his appointment, Mr Bolloré said:

“Jaguar Land Rover is known around the world for its peerless brand heritage, exquisite design and deep engineering integrity. It will be my privilege to lead this fantastic company through what continues to be the most testing time of our generation.

“Renowned for their passion and spirit, the people of Jaguar Land Rover are the driving force behind its success. I couldn’t be more excited to join the team continuing to shape the future of this iconic company.”

Mr Bolloré succeeds Prof Sir Ralf Speth, a friend of the Jaguar Enthusiasts' Club, who will take up the previously announced position of Non-Executive Vice Chairman of Jaguar Land Rover plc.

Mr Chandrasekaran added: “I want to thank Ralf for a decade of outstanding vision and leadership for Jaguar Land Rover and welcome him to his new Non-Executive position in addition to his existing role on the board of Tata Sons.”

The Jaguar Enthusiasts' Club wish Thierry Bolloré all the best of luck in his new role at Jaguar and look forward to seeing the future of our beloved brand unfold.
