Škoda names new head of sales

Škoda UK has appointed Kevin Rendell as its new head of sales operations.

He joins the brand following five years as head of aftersales at Volkswagen UK. He will replace John French, who leaves the brand to take up the role of head of product planning for SEAT and Cupra UK.

Škoda UK brand director Rod McLeod said: “Kevin has been a crucial part of Volkswagen group’s success in the UK over the years. He brings with him a wealth of experience that will prove invaluable as Škoda readies itself for the next phase of its growth plans.”

Rendell said: “What a fantastic time to join Škoda. I am really looking forward to working with the UK team and all dealer partners to continue the momentum.”
