2 November 2011

Jaguar Land Rover has appointed former Audi UK boss Jeremy Hicks as its new UK managing director.

Previously, Jaguar and Land Rover had separate bosses in the UK. However, JLR has decided to bring its UK operations under the leadership of a single person, in line with its operations abroad.

Hicks, who has also worked for Vauxhall and the VW Group, will report to Phil Popham, who is director of group sales operations for Jaguar Land Rover.

The previous managing director of Jaguar UK, Geoff Cousins, will become director of Jaguar's global sponsorships and partnerships operations.

Colin Green, the previous managing director of Land Rover UK, becomes director of global dealer operations.

    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
