UK CEO Announcement
Opteven confirms continued
investment in its UK businesses
to spearhead substantial expected growth.
We have significant plans to build upon success in UK and are therefore preparing for further growth.
To support this, Ludovic Troyes will join Opteven as CEO, UK & Ireland in September.
Ludovic joins Opteven from Renault Group and brings with him more than 30 years of automotive experience in sales & marketing roles, from across the UK and overseas, which includes being Global Sales Performance Director and most recently, Managing Director of Renault Retail Group in UK.
“I’m joining Opteven at an exciting time where the UK division shows so much growth potential and has the valuable backing of an Internationally established Group. We already have a foothold in both the ‘Retail’ and ‘Corporate’ sectors and will look to continue to build upon these successes and further our growth. We have big plans for UK and Ireland and I’m really looking forward to leading the business in this next exciting phase”. Ludovic Troyes
“We’re thrilled to have Ludovic join Opteven and look forward to this next phase of growth for the company in UK. This supports our Highway25 Strategic Plan to double the size of our UK activities in the coming years, in our pursuit to build an International Champion with ‘quality’ at our core. We have had great success so far in UK, but we still have key objectives to achieve. Craig Grant has done a good job for us as UK Managing Director over the last couple of years for which we are very grateful. However, we always knew there would be a ‘next phase of growth’ and Craig only wanted to hold the baton until that point. Looking ahead, we will continue our strategy in UK to improve and modernise the suite of products on offer within the UK market, increase the number of our distribution channels and expand the overall market by offering new products and services to new sectors. Sustainable organic growth will be our foundation, supported by a continued investment in both IT and our highly talented colleagues, but we also expect to explore further acquisitions in UK. We consider ourselves as very different to the traditional operators within the UK, as evidenced by the fact many of our employees are also shareholders, so shareholdings are not reserved only for the Group’s Board. We view ourselves very much as ‘One Team’ “. Martin Quail, Chief Executive Officer International
