Lance Bradley (pictured), managing director of Mitsubishi in the UK, is to step down from his role at the end of the financial year on 31 March 2018.

Bradley has spent 17 years working for the manufacturer, initially as sales and marketing director and then as managing director for the past nine years.

Mitsubishi said that over the next six months Bradley will continue to oversee the company’s transition to working within the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance. Mitsubishi aims to appoint a new MD in early 2018.
