Karl-Thomas Neumann said: ‘Tim brings a wealth of motor industry experience to the Opel/Vauxhall organisation, a strong understanding of the sales and marketing functions and a wide knowledge of both operational and strategic aspects of the business. Vauxhall is an exceptional performer in the UK industry and we look forward to Tim building on the strong foundations already developed by Duncan Aldred and his team.’ [source: Vauxhall]
