PEUGEOT has named Matthew Weston as its new Head of Business Sales following the departure of Louise Neilson, who has moved to a different role within Groupe PSA. Weston steps into the role following three years of success as LCV Product Manager for PEUGEOT and Citroën.

Weston brings 25 years of experience working within the automotive sales sector, including almost 15 years with Groupe PSA. During his time in the industry, Weston has risen from the role of Sales Executive to his most recent role as Head of Business Sales.

The new role will involve close engagement with PEUGEOT’s Dealers, helping the brand to continue to grow through the work of the vast network across the UK. The Dealer network is an integral part of PEUGEOT’s ambition to establish itself as the best high-end generalist brand and to provide an electrified derivative for every model by 2023. The all-new PEUGEOT e-208 is PEUGEOT’s first electric offering, available to order now, followed by the all-electric e-2008 SUV.

As LCV Product Manager, Weston played a key role in establishing the position of PEUGEOT and Citroën’s LCV ranges. By managing product information in line with Groupe PSA’s brand strategy, Weston took responsibility for a range of key elements, which will be vital to his new positon, including: pricing, specification changes and strategy.

Matthew Weston said of his new appointment: “I am really excited about taking on this new role with PEUGEOT. I have been part of the PSA family for many years now and have loved every minute of it, so it will be great to get closer to the wider Dealer network and support them in achieving our brand ambitions. We have set ourselves some really strong business objectives for the coming years, and I look forward to taking on the challenge of assuring the PEUGEOT brand continues to excel.”

David Peel, Managing Director of PEUGEOT UK said: “Matt has a great track record with Groupe PSA. He has built up a wealth of experience in the automotive sales sector, and we know that he will bring the drive and tenacity we have seen from him over the past 15 years to his new role. Our plan for an electrified range is just one of the many undertakings we have committed to, and Matt’s experience with the company will be a great asset to help drive our objectives forward.”

Weston will start his new role as PEUGEOT’s Head of Business Sales on Monday 2nd September.
