Daewoo's renaissance in the United Kingdom has begun with the appointment of Andy Carroll as managing director-designate of what is currently referred to as "the new GM Daewoo company in the UK". Carroll was previously chief operating officer of the car sales website Oneswoop.com and, before then, was the German-based head of commercial vehicle sales for General Motors Europe. He will report to Hardy Spranger, recently appointed executive-in-charge of GM Daewoo Auto and Technology Europe.
