Leadership transition at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars North America

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has announced that President (North America), Eric Shepherd, has decided to move to a new entrepreneurial role in the super-luxury automotive retail sector within the Rolls-Royce family.

"Eric's move is a big loss to our successful business
at Rolls-Royce North America but we are highly supportive of talented managers like Eric pursuing personal business opportunities, particularly when it means they stay within the Rolls-Royce community. Eric's dynamic leadership of our North American operation has been highly effective. He has established a strong team and cohesive network which has led to a substantial strengthening of our business in the region," said Torsten Mueller-Oetvoes, Chief Executive.

Shepherd will continue in office as President of Rolls-Royce NA until December 31, 2015.

He will be succeeded by Pedro Mota who will join Rolls-Royce NA from Porsche Cars NA where he served as Vice-President, Area West. Mota holds an INSEAD MBA and a Master's Degree in electrical engineering from Lisbon Technical University.

Mota will join Rolls-Royce NA October 1, 2015 which will allow time for an induction and familiarisation with the company before taking over full control of the region on January 1, 2016.
