Andrew Humberstone appointed as Nissan GB managing director

Date: 06 January 2020   |   Author: Illya Verpraet

Nissan Motor GB has appointed Andrew Humberstone as its new managing director. He's replacing Kalyana Sivagnanam with immediate effect.

Humberstone joined Nissan in May 2019, leading Nissan's independent markets. He has more than 27 years of experience in the automotive industry, having previously held executive positions in different international markets, including at FCA.

He said: "The UK is our biggest market and is extremely important for Nissan - customers here have taken our electric and crossover models to heart and made Qashqai, Juke and LEAF the leading vehicles in their segments."

"With the all-new Nissan Juke now on sale - and having taken almost three thousand orders since its launch six weeks ago - I'm excited to join the UK team as we look forward to leading a new era of design, electrification and connectivity in our line-up."

The previous Nissan UK MD, Kalyana Sivagnanam, had only joined Nissan in April of 2019, and is leaving the company "to pursue other opportunities".
