Gurney leaves Stellantis for Polestar

Date: 26 February 2021   |   Author: Simon Harris

Polestar has appointed former PSA fleet and used vehicles director director Martin Gurney as head of European fleet and business sales, specifically looking after the UK and Benelux regions.

Gurney had spent two decades with PSA Group (now Stellantis), with previous roles across sales, training and retail. Gurney also spent the last five years as fleet and used vehicles boss.

He is charged with developing fleet and business sales within some of the the fiercest and most competitively fought European markets, and last year the company launched the medium-sized all-electric Polestar 2.

Polestar's global head of sales, Mike Whittington said: "During 2020 we focused on establishing our fleet and business infrastructure and launching Polestar 2. With a significant level of demand and momentum building, during 2021 we will focus even more intensely and demonstrate the importance of fleet sales to Polestar.

"I am delighted that Martin is joining us to strengthen the team, which will expand even further across Europe. With his considerable experience we will continue to build our fleet presence during the coming years."

Gurney added: "Polestar is a brand I've been watching closely and when the opportunity arose to join I just had to grasp it. It's clear the automotive future is electric so I couldn't think of a better place to be - the opportunity is huge."
