Marc Raven is retiring early from his role as Communications Director at Citroën UK. He will leave the carmaker at the end of 2013. Raven has been with Citroën UK for around 25 years and has been the company’s Communications Director for the past 16 years. Linda Jackson, Managing Director of Citroën UK, remarked that Raven’s knowledge, unique style and professionalism “are well known within the Motoring media.”

Set to replace Raven as Communications Director for Citroën UK and Ireland is James Parfett, who has been with the carmaker for over 20 years. He is currently the Sales Director at Citroën Financial Services, the carmaker’s finance unit. He was National Fleet Sales Manager for the Citroën Fleet Department.

The 50-year old Parfett expressed excitement about taking on the new role, adding that he looks forward to meeting the media in the UK and Ireland in the coming months. He quipped that he won’t formally assume the role until January but that he will be at the Frankfurt Motor Show and at the launch of the new Grand C4 Picasso.

Jackson remarked that an extended handover period will provide Parfett a great start, adding that the Press team under John Handcock will ensure that the carmaker maintain the personal service the Press and media have become accustomed to. She added that she is confident that Parfett can continue “Marc's good work,” thanks to his comprehensive understanding of Citroën, its products and the auto industry in general. [source: Citroen]
