  • Louise O’Sullivan appointed Network Operations Director, Groupe Renault UK
  • Promoted from her current role as Dacia Brand Manager
  • Louise O’Sullivan has been with Groupe Renault for nearly 25 years
  • Sales Director, Nick Tame, moves to a new role within Groupe Renault

Louise O’Sullivan has been appointed as the new Network Operations Director for Groupe Renault UK following a promotion from her previous role as Dacia Brand Manager, having been with Groupe Renault UK for nearly 25 years. After two and a half years as Sales Director for Groupe Renault UK, Nick Tame will be taking up a new strategic management role within Groupe Renault.

Louise O’Sullivan commented: “I’m delighted to become Network Operations Director at such an important time for our brands. I’ve worked closely with our dealer partners throughout my time with Groupe Renault, not least in my most recent role as Dacia Brand Manager, listening to the network’s invaluable insight and feedback to develop the Dacia brand together in the UK. The Groupe achieved a lot in 2017 and 2018, as part of our Drive The Future Mid-Term Plan, and we are now ready to build on these foundations and accelerate in 2019 and beyond.”

Vincent Tourette, Managing Director, Groupe Renault UK and Ireland, commented: “Louise has considerable experience in working with our dealers and has a strong track record through delivering the Dacia Acceleration Plan and so I congratulate her on a worthy promotion. Her appointment as Network Operations Director will strengthen an already extremely capable team and allow us to focus on our business targets for the years to come. I would like to thank Nick for the energy, passion and commitment he brought to his sales role during the last two and half years and I wish him all the very best for his new role.”

Louise joined Groupe Renault UK in 1995 on the Graduate Scheme having graduated from Lancaster University with a degree in Marketing and French. From there, she moved up the ranks through market analysis, product marketing, sales, after-sales, fleet business and marketing communications. Amongst much more, Louise had responsibility for Renault’s high-end vehicle range in the mid-2000s, as well as the LCV range and then oversaw successful marketing campaigns such as Renault’s sponsorship of ITV’s Jonathan Ross Show. She became Head of Dacia for the UK, Ireland, Malta and Cyprus in October 2015. Louise has overseen Dacia’s impressive retail market share growth and has also recently celebrated with over 140,000 Dacia vehicles sold since Dacia launched in the UK six years ago. Louise retains responsibility for the Dacia brand in the UK and Ireland until a successor to her former role is announced in the near future.
