Portrait of Duncan Aldred

Duncan Aldred, currently Chairman and Managing Director of Vauxhall Motors, has been named Acting Opel/Vauxhall Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Aftersales in addition to his current position. This follows the resignation of Alfred E. Rieck, a member of the Opel Management Board and responsible for sales, marketing and aftersales.


“We respect Alfred Rieck’s decision and wish him the best in his future endeavours,” said Opel Supervisory Board Chairman, Steve Girsky. “Day in and day out, Duncan Aldred delivers clear proof that our business plan works and our attractive models are the key to success.”


Appointed Managing Director in January 2010, Aldred has been successfully building the Vauxhall brand – which is now the fastest-growing retail brand in the United Kingdom.
