Kim McCullough is the new vice president for Land Rover, David Pryor for Jaguar

Article by Christian Andrei, on April 22, 2011

For a major product assault within the next five years, Jaguar Land Rover North America has brought in outsiders from Lexus and Porsche. It also separated sales tasks from those of marketing. Kim McCullough is the new brand vice president for Land Rover. McCullough has formerly worked for Lexus as its assistant general manager for the western U.S. region.

She has also been a part of Toyota’s marketing communications. Jaguar's new brand vice president is David Pryor who had formerly served as the vice president of marketing for Porsche Cars North America. McCullough and Pryor will report to Andy Goss, who will begin officially as president of Jaguar Land Rover North America on May 1.

Goss had been the former CEO of Porsche Great Britain. Goss is the successor of Gary Temple, who will retire later this year. The hiring of these three new members was made possible by Jaguar Land Rover's chiefs -- Jaguar Land Rover CEO Ralf Speth; CEO Carl-Peter Forster; and Tata Motors.

Another management change is the appointment of Sharon Corrigon as the brand's national sales operations manager from being Jaguar's vice president of marketing.

Jaguar Land Rover is an automotive company built around two iconic British car brands that are designed, engineered and manufactured in the UK. Founded in 1922, Jaguar Cars Limited is one of the premier manufacturers of sports cars and luxury sedans worldwide.

Since 1948, Land Rover has been a manufacturer of authentic four-wheel-drive vehicles that characterize 'breadth of capability' in their segments. Jaguar has a plant in Castle Bromwich, Birmingham where the XF, XJ and XK models are built.

Land Rover manufactures the LR2 (Freelander 2) at their plant in Halewood, Liverpool while the Defender, LR4 (Discovery 4), Range Rover Sport plus Range Rover models are manufactured at their plant in Solihull.

The Jaguar Land Rover business has about 16,000 employees, most of whom are in the UK, consisting of around 3,500 engineers working at two production development centers located at Gaydon, Warwickshire and Whitley, Coventry.

This business is UK’s major income generator since 78% of Land Rovers are exported to 169 countries while 70% of Jaguars are exported to 63 countries, wherein customer sales are principally conducted via importers and franchise dealers.
