New managerial appointments have been announced by Stellantis UK, including two specific to commercial vehicles.

Lee Titchner (pictured) has been named as Pro One LCV director, while former UK LCV director Tony Lewis has been appointed as commercial vehicle business development director. 

Stellantis, which owns brands such as Peugeot, Citroen, Vauxhall, and Fiat, has also announced Steve Beattie as Vauxhall sales and operations director, and Tom Ray as B2B operations director.

Titchner has spent seven years as network development director, having previously held several roles across sales and aftersales.

Lewis’s new role will see him take responsibility for global key accounts, focusing on delivery vans.

Group managing director Maria Grazia Davino said: “I would like to welcome Lee, Steve and Tom to their new roles and wish them all every success in delivering on our Dare Forward 2030 commitments.

“Lee’s broad and varied knowledge coupled with his strong relationships with the network will enable him to lead the Pro One strategy at Stellantis, with our ongoing focus to maximise our market share for LCV in UK and maintaining industry leadership in electric vans.

“This approach, with the newly-created delivery van sales role, will strengthen our collective offering and coverage, supporting our strategic aims in the LCV market. I am delighted that one of our team will take the lead on such a strategic position and I would like to thank Tony for his great contribution to the UK team.

“I welcome Steve back to the group. Steve’s wide experience across sales and aftersales, integral knowledge of the Vauxhall brand and positive network engagement skills will make him a valuable asset in driving our Vauxhall sales results forwards. 

“Finally, I congratulate Tom on his new role and know that his extensive sales and leadership experience will enable him to drive forward our plans for the fleet market.”
