Leadership transition at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars North America

(PresseBox) ( West Sussex, )
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has announced that President (North America), Eric Shepherd, has decided to move to a new entrepreneurial role in the super-luxury automotive retail sector within the Rolls-Royce family. 

Chief Executive, Torsten Mueller-Oetvoes, said, “Eric’s move is a big loss to our successful business at Rolls-Royce North America but we are highly supportive of talented managers like Eric pursuing personal business opportunities, particularly when it means they stay within the Rolls-Royce community. Eric’s dynamic leadership of our North American operation has been highly effective. He has established a strong team and cohesive network which has led to a substantial strengthening of our business in the region.”

Shepherd will continue in office as President of Rolls-Royce NA until 31 December 2015.

He will be succeeded by Pedro Mota who will join Rolls-Royce NA from Porsche Cars NA where he served as Vice President, Area West. Mota holds an INSEAD MBA and a Master’s Degree in electrical engineering from Lisbon Technical University. Rolls-Royce Sales and Marketing Director, Fintan Knight, said, “Pedro is a highly experienced, international executive who has made the US his home. He has a strong understanding of the luxury car business and of the opportunities and challenges inherent in increasing shareholder value in North America. We look forward to him joining our global Rolls-Royce family and leading our North American team.”

Mota will join Rolls-Royce NA 1 October 2015 which will allow time for an induction and familiarisation with the company before taking over full control of the region on 1 January 2016.
