Tim Tozer to take over as new Vauxhall UK boss

Tim Tozer has been appointed as the new chairman and managing director of Vauxhall Motors UK and chief executive officer of Opel Ireland.

Tozer’s appointment follows the departure of Duncan Aldred to become US vice president, Buick-GMC sales, service and marketing, located at GM’s headquarters in Detroit.

Tozer joins Vauxhall from Autobinck Holding NV in The Hague where he was CEO. He has also held senior management positions in Europe including president and CEO of Mitsubishi Motors Europe, managing director of Mazda UK and a regional director of Inchcape Motors International.

Tozer will report to executive vice president Opel/Vauxhall and president of General Motors Europe, Karl-Thomas Neumann, as chairman and managing director of Vauxhall Motors and to Peter Kuespert, vice-president sales & aftersales, in his sales function.

Neumann said: “Tim brings a wealth of motor industry experience to the Opel/Vauxhall organisation, a strong understanding of the sales and marketing functions and a wide knowledge of both operational and strategic aspects of the business.

“Vauxhall is an exceptional performer in the UK industry and we look forward to Tim building on the strong foundations already developed by Duncan Aldred and his team.”

Tozer will join the company on February 24.

    Having owned many Vauxhall's in the past I would like to inform you that due to your latest commercial the pyjama mamas I will never buy one of your products again. I am totally disgusted that you think it is appropriate for mothers to be shown taking children to school by people who cant be bothered to get dressed. Some schools are having to send home notes to parents banning then from bringing children to school in their night clothes and you think it is ok to promote this behaviour SHAME ON YOU
