Jaguar announced today that its current Managing Director Mike O'Driscoll will retire from retire from day-to-day operations at Jaguar Land Rover by the end of March 2011.

Still, a successor has not been named, and O'Driscoll will remain chairman of Jaguar Heritage, which is an independent trust that manages Jaguar's museum, archives and global car collection.

O'Driscoll became Managing Director back in 2007, when he succeeded Bibiana Boerio. He moved from UK from the United States, where he was president of Jaguar Land Rover North America.

O'Driscoll led the Jaguar brand through the sale process to Tata Motors Ltd. in 2008 and as managing director he overseen the introduction of new Jaguar products such as the XF, XK, and XJ.

"Being part of the team that rebuilt this great brand has been a huge privilege and a gratifying way to sign off my long career with Jaguar,” O'Driscoll, who started his automotive career with Jaguar Rover Triumph in 1975, said in a statement.

The resurgence is symbolized by the wonderful reaction to our new products and to the stunning C-X75 supercar concept we showed at the recent Paris Auto Show."
