Infiniti appoints vice president EMEA

DUBAI, September 22, 2016

Infiniti Motor Company has appointed Raoul Picello as vice president, Europe, Middle East and Africa effective October 1.

Picello, currently vice president of Sales for Nissan in Europe, succeeds François Goupil de Bouille, who is leaving the company to pursue other interests. Picello will be based in Infiniti’s European headquarters in Rolle, Switzerland, and report to Infiniti president Roland Krueger.

Picello joined Nissan Europe in 2012 as managing director of Nissan Iberia. A year later, he was appointed to his current position.

Krueger said: “Raoul Picello joins Infiniti at a pivotal moment as we are in the middle of a major product offensive. Our Q30 and QX30 compact vehicles have been well received in Europe and beyond. With the all-new Q60 sports coupe, the new 3.0 twin-turbo V6 and other highly innovative technologies, Infiniti carries further momentum.”

“Raoul’s experience of more than 25 years in sales and marketing in the automobile industry will further support our growth ambitions. Also, I would like to take the opportunity to thank François Goupil de Bouille for his long years of service with Nissan and Infiniti. He has successfully launched the all new Q30 and QX30 in Europe and the team wishes him well for his next steps in life,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
