NISSAN’S commercial vehicle operation has a new sales and marketing director.
Tony Lewis joins the company from van maker LDV, where he held the same position. He has also worked for Ford, responsible for Eastern European operations and commercial vehicle zones.
‘I am delighted to join the team at Nissan, and to have the opportunity of developing our UK presence with the most extensive range of high quality commercial vehicles on the market,’ said Lewis.
Lewis will head a dedicated LCV team which, according to MD Paul Willcox, ‘will play a central role in Nissan’s planned growth over the next five years… Tony’s experience of developing and implementing strategies for CV growth will prove invaluable as we endeavour to take the LCV business forward.’
Significantly, he adds: ‘The importance of LCVs has been raised within Nissan and, reflecting this, Tony will sit on the Nissan GB Management Board; this is the first time commercial vehicles has been placed at the heart of the business.’
Lewis plans to grow the business both through a series of new vehicle launches, and by developing Nissan’s distributions strategy and network.
