In addition, Jeffrey H. Guyton will be appointed as representative director, chief executive officer and chief financial officer (CFO). Guyton currently oversees Mazda’s North American operations. The 56-year-old previously managed the carmaker’s European business in Leverkusen for ten years.

From the perspective of Martijn ten Brink, President and CEO of Mazda Motor Europe, the personalization is “a renewed commitment to the European region and to the dealer network”. Europe has always been an important market for Mazda, where the future course of the automotive industry is set.
