Rolls Royce Motor Cars has today announced that Giles Taylor has been appointed Head of Exterior Design. He will join the company from the beginning of April 2011.

After his design studies in the United Kingdom, Taylor initially gathered experience in several international design roles. The 43 year-old Briton has spent the last 10 years as an executive designer in the British industry, acting as head of design for two model series at Jaguar. He fills a vacant position in the Rolls Royce design team.

"Giles has a deep knowledge of emotive brands in the luxury segment and a proven track record. He will be a very valuable addition to the Rolls Royce design team", said Ian Cameron, Chief Designer, Rolls Royce Motor Cars.

Adrian van Hooydonk, Head of BMW Group design, commented, "Giles brings with him exceptional design skills and a comprehensive understanding of British values and heritage that are so crucial to Rolls Royce. His appointment will further strengthen the extraordinary Rolls Royce team headed by Ian Cameron."

The Rolls Royce design team has received several design accolades. The most recent was the "Red Dot: Best of the Best" Award in 2010 for the latest addition to the portfolio, Ghost. This award recognizes the high quality, groundbreaking design.

Rolls Royce Motor Cars has recently announced record sales for 2010. Sustained demand for the Rolls Royce Phantom and the additional momentum of the Rolls Royce Ghost resulted in sales growth of more than 170 per cent over 2009.
