Mercedes-Benz UK has appointed Gary Savage as its new managing director - barely a year after he left Audi to head up Citroen's UK operations.
Savage replaces Dermot Kelly, who will retire at the end of June 2010.
Wilfried Steffen, president and CEO of Mercedes-Benz UK, commented; “Gary Savage has consistently delivered significant business results in all his previous roles and firmly established his professional reputation within our sector."
He added: "Dermot Kelly has played a major part in driving forward the Mercedes-Benz passenger car strategy, making Mercedes-Benz and smart the successful brands they are today. I would like to wish Dermot well and at the same time welcome Gary to the company."
