Renault has named the chief performance officer and chief competitiveness officer to replace chief operating officer Carlos Tavares who stepped down earlier this month.

Thierry Bolloré is chief competitive officer in charge of design-product-programmes, engineering-quality-IS/IT, purchasing, manufacturing and supply chain.

His main goals will be to reinforce the development of an attractive range of products, to improve product competitiveness, optimise total delivered cost, increase quality and reinforce programme profitability.

Jose Vicente de los Mozos is EVP, manufacturing and supply chain, replacing Thierry Bolloré.

Jérôme Stoll is now chief performance officer in charge of sales and marketing and coordinates the group’s regions.

His main goals will be to deliver the company’s revenue, market share and sales profitability targets.

All posts take effect immediately.

From 1 October, Michael van der Sande will become SVP, marketing, replacing Stephen Norman. He will be member of the Renault management committee and will report to Jérôme Stoll, in his capacity as EVP sales and marketing.

Stephen Norman‘s future appointment will be announced separately.

"Our objective was to take fast, transparent action by putting in place a clear and simple organisation. The aim is threefold: to accelerate and expand our ongoing progress, to ensure performance at group level and to give the regions more responsibility," said Carlos Ghosn, chairman and CEO of Renault.
