“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.
