Ludovic Troyes has joined Renault Retail Group (RRG) as its new managing director.
He replaces Barry Jones, who had been in the role since late 2015 and will now lead the 17 Renault sites, 16 Dacia and five Nissan dealerships that are part of the business across the UK.
Jones has left to "pursue interests outside the company".
RRG dealerships sell one in four of every Renault or Dacias sold in the UK.
Troyes has moved jobs to the Renault-owned dealer group from his role as global LCV sales director, a role he has been in since October 2015.
Before leading LCV sales for Renault, Troyes was distribution costs director at the brand and also worked as world sales performance director, where he was responsible for boosting Renault and Dacia sales.
