Groupe Renault UK has appointed James Bolton as its new Product & Corporate Communications Manager with responsibility for Renault passenger cars.

James started in the industry in 2011 when he was a journalist at Motorsport News. He later joined Volkswagen UK, where he was the Press Officer from March 2016.

Commenting on his new role, James said: “It’s exciting to be a part of the Groupe Renault press office and I can’t wait to get started. Renault has a characterful product range and a rich heritage; I’ve been reading about the company’s automotive innovations and watching its motorsport success on television for the past two decades and more. With the success of the Dacia and Alpine brands, Groupe Renault is an exciting place to be right now.”

Matthew Bendall, Head of Press & Public Relations, said: “I’m delighted to welcome James to the team and I’m confident he’s going to do a great job of representing Renault to the UK media. We’ve got a busy few months ahead of us, not least with the Paris Motor Show, and then a number of new launches in 2019 to look forward to so I’m sure James will be up to speed on all things Renault in no time at all.”

An announcement about the team’s new Press Relations Manager will follow in due course. There is currently an opening for the role of Senior Events Manager, details available to view here.
