Jaguar Land Rover has appointed Thierry Bolloré as its new Chief Executive Officer, effective 10 September 2020. Bolloré will replace Sir Ralf Speth, who will take up the position of a Non-Executive Vice Chairman of JLR.
I am delighted to welcome Thierry to Jaguar Land Rover. An established global business leader with a proven track record of implementing complex transformations, Thierry will bring a wealth of experience to one of the most revered positions in the industry. – Natarajan Chandrasekaran, Chairman, Tata Motors
Bolloré served as the CEO of Groupe Renault during Ghosn crisis and until October 2019. During his tenure, Renault launched the Triber MPV — an important product for the brand in India. He started his career with Michelin in the ’90s and moved to Faurecia — a supplier to automotive OEMs, sometime in 2005.
It will be my privilege to lead this fantastic company through what continues to be the most testing time of our generation. Renowned for their passion and spirit, the people of Jaguar Land Rover are the driving force behind its success. I couldn’t be more excited to join the team continuing to shape the future of this iconic company. – Bolloré
“I want to thank Ralf for a decade of outstanding vision and leadership for Jaguar Land Rover and welcome him to his new Non-Executive position in addition to his existing role on the board of Tata Sons,” Chandrasekaran added.
