Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has announced that Giles Taylor has been appointed Design Director with effect from July 1.

He will report to Adrian van Hooydonk, senior vice president BMW Group Design. Taylor replaces Ian Cameron, who retires from the role he has held since 1999.

"His legendary design capabilities combined with his passion for the company’s distinguished heritage have made him an integral part of the success of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars since the brand was acquired by the BMW Group.

"As his successor, Giles Taylor has a deep knowledge of emotive brands in the luxury segment and a proven track record, and is the perfect choice to lead the Rolls-Royce design team to future success.”
