MG Motor UK has announced two new senior appointments.
Guy Pigounakis has been named as commercial director, while David Pugh becomes marketing director, with both forming part of an expanded senior management structure.
Pigounakis (pictured, right) was previously commercial director at MG Rover Group, sales director at Hyundai, and most recently head of operations at Richmond Motor Group.
He will take responsibility for evolving MG's sales, aftersales, and network development departments.
He said: "Being involved with the MG brand is a bit of a homecoming for me and I can't wait to get stuck in to supporting the next phase of the company's growth.
"There is an amazing amount of potential waiting to be unlocked and this is a hugely exciting time to be getting involved."
Pugh (pictured, left) has previously worked in marketing for Vauxhall, GM, Jaguar Land Rover, and Hyundai, and joins MG directly from running his own consultancy.
He said: "Of all the brands in the automotive industry at the moment, MG is by far the most interesting.
"It's an amazing brand that's already growing rapidly and is perfectly poised to accelerate that growth as we head towards an electrified future, not least because it is already seen as an EV leader.
"It's a hugely exciting time to be joining the company and there's an incredible depth of enthusiasm within the MG Motor team."
