Joe Greenwell has been appointed as chairman and trustee of the RAC Foundation. The former Ford of Britain boss will replace David Quarmby on 15 July.

Prior to the chairman of Ford UK, Greenwell held positions including vice president of Ford’s Premier Automotive Group and chairman and CEO of Jaguar and Land Rover.

He was awarded a CBE in June 2011.

Joe Greenwell said: “After a lifetime in the automotive industry I am very familiar with the important and independent work the RAC Foundation does and I am honoured that I have been given the opportunity to contribute to the organisation’s continued success.

“Rarely have the issues surrounding road transport – safety, taxation, carbon emissions, funding – been so far up the political agenda. I aim to keep them there and ensure the foundation continues to make a meaningful contribution to debate at the highest levels.”
