Mazda has appointed Mark Cameron, formerly marketing director, as sales director, following the promotion of Jeremy Thomson to managing director.
Cameron was appointed marketing director in July 2005, following five months heading up the Mazda brand team responsible for product strategy.
Prior to this, he worked at Ford for eleven years.
Jeremy Thomson said: “Mark's task will be to ensure that Mazda's dealer network continues to be both profitable and productive to sustain our sales volume targets in the current economic climate and beyond."
The appointment of a new marketing director is yet to be announced.
