Citing vehicle electrification, Jaguar Land Rover named Grant McPherson as Executive Director of Manufacturing and a member of the company’s Board of Management. McPherson will oversee more than 20,000 people and will report to Ralf Speth, the company’s CEO.
In addition to responsibility for the company’s UK and global manufacturing operations and logistics teams, McPherson will be responsible for “transforming [the company’s] plants to enable Jaguar Land Rover’s exciting electrified future.”
Starting in 2020, all new Jaguar Land Rovers will be electrified, which means a mix of fully electric, plug-in hybrid, and mild hybrid vehicles.
