MOTOR racing aficionado Jeremy Smith has been fast tracked by Citroen into a new role.
From the beginning of March, Jeremy takes over as head of commercial vehicles & business sector operations.
Previous incumbent, Scott Michael, is joining Motability Operations as conversions & adaptations relationship manager.
Jeremy Smith (51) brings with him a vast store of Citroen knowledge and expertise garnered over 21 years with the brand.
This includes sales posts in fleet and retail, as well as finance, product marketing and retail group positions.
Outside of Citroen, Jeremy is a keen motorsports fan – he is a member of the British Automobile Racing Club and a licensed MSA Clerk of the Course, so he officiates at race meetings across the country: expect to see more competitors using Citroen vans in the future then!
Jeremy will operate from the Coventry Citroen HQ organising the work of the field-based team of regional business centre managers – Gillian Blair, Denis Golden, Andrew Hibbs and Jeff Rodger.
Additionally Jeremy will have responsibility for a new commercial vehicle & business programmes manager – a new position at Citroen, with the manager due to be announced shortly.
“Commercial vehicles and our Business Centre network play a key role in Citroen’s growing success with small fleet operators and SME businesses, which are the backbone of the UK economy,” commented Jeremy on his appointment.
“Citroen LCV sales for January have seen the brand take a record market share in the up to 3.5 tonne gvw sector and we will be launching new products and services in our Business Centre network to maintain this progress.”
Citroen won the Best City Van category in our recent Business Van of the Year Awards.
