Paul was named as the motor industry's top Sales and Marketing Executive and is credited with improving Kia's new car sales as a result of bold decisions including Kia's seven year warranty on all cars sold in Europe. Automotive News Europe highlighted the strategy as drawing hughe attention to Kia and improving brand awareness and sales.

Philpott commented: "I am honoured to receive this award from ANE and delighted that Kia has been recognised in the Eurostar awards. We are steadily building our business in Europe and have grown sales by 30 per cent over the last three years, but we are also in the middle of transforming our product range, so we expect to see sales growth accelerate further in the years to come. This award is a reflection of the tremendous effort and focus demonstrated by the entire Kia team across Europe."
