Bentley names new UK director

Bentley has named Richard Leopold as regional director for UK, Middle East, Africa and India.

He will replace Sarah Simpson, who moved to Porsche GB, on 1 September.

Alain Favey, Bentley’s member of the board for sales, marketing and aftersales, said: “Richard has an innate understanding of the Bentley brand and the regional activities around the world so is perfectly placed to build on Sarah’s outstanding contribution to the business. I have no doubt that he will help develop the key regions now under his responsibility as we look to transform our global business to become the leader in sustainable luxury mobility.”
