Rogers said: “I’m looking forward to being back in the UK and working alongside the team here to continue the roll-out of our innovative approach to doing business. The UK automotive retail sector is in a positive place right now, and we want to do everything we can to ensure our retailers are able to benefit from the retention and business growth opportunities that transparency and treating the customer fairly can bring.”
Preston Rogers will commence his new role on August 3.
