Infiniti appoints Tony Lewis as UK sales boss
04 May 2011
Infiniti has appointed Tony Lewis as sales chief for the UK, taking over the role of regional director Europe North from Angus Gray who moves to the role of overseeing the continued growth in the network of European Infiniti Centres.
Previously European sales and marketing director of Nissan LCV, Lewis will be responsible for driving the sales of the expanding Infiniti line-up, focusing on key Northern European markets such as the UK.
Lewis "will play a key role as Infiniti moves into the second phase of its UK launch, seeking to expand its network coverage across the region following the Japanese performance brand's small but perfectly formed debut in late 2009" said the carmaker.
"Infiniti's launch has been a textbook exercise in how to introduce a new luxury brand," said Lewis. "Now we have to put tough economic times behind us and ensure we capitalise on all the good work and really start to make an impact in the UK market.
"Everything is in place for that to happen - from our unique Infiniti Centres to our partnership with Formula One World Champions Red Bull Racing to our expanding range of performance cars, which I've wasted little time in getting to know.
He added: "To be involved with Infiniti at such a dynamic time in its European development is an amazing opportunity."
