Nissan appoints Jardine Motors’ Tony Lewis as UK sales director

Nissan Motor GB has announced the appointment of Tony Lewis (pictured) as its new UK sales director.

Lewis, who is currently brand director at Jardine Motors Group, will begin his new role with Nissan on February 4.

The move marks a return to Nissan for Lewis, who has held a number of roles within the Nissan Motor Group in the past including UK corporate sales director for Nissan Motor GB and Infiniti regional director of Northern Europe.

Managing director at Nissan Motor GB, James Wright, said: “I am delighted that Tony is joining us as the UK sales director and I am sure he will continue to take the brand from strength to strength following a record-breaking 2014 which saw Nissan post its highest ever passenger car market share and sales volumes.”

Lewis said: “I am thrilled to be returning to the Nissan team and taking on this new challenge. Following a number of key product launches last year, Nissan has the youngest and most exciting product line-up in its history and I am looking forward to utilising my recent retail experience to further improve the performance of the UK dealer network.”

Lewis replaces Jon Pollock who will be leaving the company to explore other opportunities.
