The carmaker remarked that both Popham and Goss have held leadership posts in North America and have strong experience in customer service.

Goss said in a statement that Jaguar Land Rover has “an ambitious global agenda” for both brands, and he looks forward to helping the carmaker “reach new heights." Jaguar Land Rover posted a 14-percent surge in global sales to 210,190 units in the first half of 2013.
