Škoda UK has appointed Volkswagen UK head of aftersales Kevin Rendall as its new head of sales operations.

Rendall’s appointment follows John French’s move to become the new head of product planning for Seat and Cupra UK and follows five years at his previous post with VW.

A statement issued by the Czech brand this morning (May 17) said that Rendall has a career spanning almost 30 years within the Volkswagen Group, with roles in aftersales, sales and product ay Seat, Volkswagen, Volkswagen Group Services and Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles.

Škoda brand director, Rod McLeod, said: “Kevin has been a crucial part of Volkswagen Group’s success in the UK over the years. 

“He brings with him a wealth of experience that will prove invaluable as ŠKODA readies itself for the next phase of its growth plans.”

Rendell said: “What a fantastic time to join Škoda. The development of the brand has been extremely impressive and with the recent launches of the Octavia and Enyaq iV, it has a strong and enviable model line-up.

“I am really looking forward to working with the UK team and all dealer partners to continue the momentum.”
