Tim Zimmerman has been appointed as Peugeot's new Managing Director, and will be moving back to the UK, leaving his current role as General Manager of Peugeot's operations in China.
Tim was born in Reading and was raised in North Devon. His career started with Peugeot in September 1986 in Coventry, and since, has held a number of roles in the UK and Europe such as Fleet, Leasing and Used Vehicle Director for Peugeot France, Marketing and Commercial Director of Banque PSA Finance and Managing Director of Peugeot Netherlands before moving to China.
Tim returns to the UK as Peugeot prepares to launch the 3008 HYbrid4, the latest model in the award winning Peugeot 3008 range, marking the first diesel-electric model available from Peugeot offering 95g/km CO2 and up to 74mpg fuel economy whilst delivering 200bhp.
Zimmerman said, "I am delighted to be returning to Britain and I relish the opportunity my new role gives me. I have long-standing acquaintances in Peugeot UK and its Dealer network so I look forward to working with them again. I also return at a time of fantastic product rejuvenation within Peugeot with the stunning RCZ, 3008, 508 and 5008 all attracting new customers to the brand."
