No successor has yet been announced.
“I am sorry to be leaving a great team of people at MAN and I am proud that the first leg of the development of MAN Truck & Bus UK has been successfully completed,” states Elliott.
Prior to leaving, he says he will launch a new CRM (customer relationship management) system to “revolutionise” sales processes and allow the business to keep much closer contact with customers.
“It is disappointing to see Simon leave our organisation,” comments Heinz Juergen Loew, board member sales and marketing in Munich.
“He has steered the company through challenging times and has spearheaded a strategy that has already seen positive results, particularly in the areas of customer focus and market-share – two of our key barometers.”
The UK market-share for MAN has seen growth from 9.1% in 2015 to a forecasted 10.5% in 2016.
