Vauxhall managing director Duncan Aldred has added Europe-wide responsibilities to his existing role.
After the resignation of Alfred Rieck from the Opel management board, Aldred has been named acting Opel/Vauxhall vice president, sales, marketing and aftersales in addition to his current position, effective immediately.
“We respect Alfred Rieck’s decision and wish him the best in his future endeavours,” said Opel supervisory board chairman Steve Girsky.
“Day in and day out, Duncan Aldred delivers clear proof that our business plan works and our attractive models are the key to success.”
Appointed Vauxhall's managing director in January 2010, Aldred has put focus on building the profitability of the brand and broadening its appeal to retail customers.
