Mark Roden, Toyota and Lexus general manager for fleet and remarketing services, is leaving the company to become managing director of Westlands Toyota Group.
Roden leaves Toyota after 15 years and will now be in charge of four dealerships located in Stourbridge, Bromsgrove, Hereford and Worcester.
Nick Poraj-Wilczynski, chairman of Westlands Toyota Group, said: “I am delighted to have secured Mark’s services.
“His experience at senior levels across the industry and in particular within Toyota make him ideally suited to drive the development of the group in the coming years.”
Toyota has appointed Ewan Shepard to take over from Roden’s position as Toyota and Lexus general manager for fleet and remarketing services and he will start on November 1.
Shepherd has 11 years’ experience with Toyota, most recently as general manager Lexus operations.
