Lance Bradley, UK managing director at Mitsubishi Motors, has decided to step down from his role at the end of the financial year, or March 31, 2018.
Bradley initially joined Mitsubishi as sales marketing director 17 years ago, and has held the position of managing director for the last nine years.
In the coming months, he will keep supervising Mitsubishi’s alliance with Renault and Nissan as well as the launch of “significant new initiatives and partnership announcements.”
Recruitment for a new managing director has now begun, with an appointment due in early 2018.
Bradley said: “Following 17 fantastic years here at Mitsubishi Motors in the UK … I have decided that the time is right for me to seek a new challenge. I have happily agreed to help find my successor and to stay around for a further 12 months as vice chairman after the appointment of the new managing director to ensure a smooth handover.
“I want to thank everyone in Mitsubishi Motors for their support in my time here. It has been an amazing time – one I will never forget – and I wish my successor, the company and everyone who works here continued success in the years to come.”
