Sunseeker Appoints New Chief Executive Officer
The story could be billed as a Chinese Gains Indian Takeaway but that would be a little harsh to announce that the Group Marketing Director of Indian owned Jaguar Land Rover has been appointed as CEO of Chinese owned Sunseeker!
The headline follows the announcement appertaining to the appointment of Phil Popham as Chief Executive Officer at Sunseeker International a post he will take up on 1 January 2015.
Phil joins Sunseeker from Jaguar Land Rover where he has had a long and successful career over the last 25 years contributing to a major UK-based automotive success story.
He has worked most of his career at Jaguar Land Rover, latterly as Group Marketing Director but he has also held the positions of Group Sales Director, Managing Director of Land Rover, as well as working in North America and South Africa for the company. During his time at the company he presided over a period of rapid growth and success for these iconic brands.
