Nicole Shaw named new MD for Volvo Car UK

Volvo Car UK has announced that Nicole Melillo Shaw will replace Kristian Elvefors as managing director.

She will step up from her position as commercial operations director on 1 November.

Elvefors, who took the helm in June 2019, said: “I am proud to have worked with a great team to help the company through a critical period of transition. This has included moving Volvo Cars’ first global market from a wholesale to a retail operation, change that we achieved together and in alignment with our retailer partners.

“People have been key in what we have accomplished as a business. I set out to build a multi-skilled management team with a broad range of experience and abilities from different sectors, and it has been a privilege to work with them to build a strong organisation with a challenging and inspiring culture.”

Shaw said: “It has been hugely rewarding to work closely with Kristian during the past few years – he has made a great personal contribution to growing our business. I look forward to the challenges and opportunities ahead, and continuing to work with the wider Volvo Car UK business and our retailer partners to keep the consumer at the heart of everything we do.”
