Former Citroen France finance director Linda Jackson is returning from Paris to the UK as managing director of Citroen UK. She starts her new role on 1 July.

Jackson was financial controller at the UK unit from 2005 to early last year when she moved to Paris. She previously had senior roles at within MG Rover including managing director in France and European sales financial controller.

Jackson said: “Citroën is undergoing something of a renaissance with its new brand image and the launch of a whole range of new vehicles. The potential for the brand and the dealer network is enormous and I am looking forward to maximising all the opportunities this will bring.”
