Jaguar’s newly appointed Managing Director Mike O’Driscoll will have a tough task on his hands, having to juggle the carmaker's turnaround and its split from Ford's Premier Auto Group. Replacing the soon-to-be retired Bibiana Boerio, O’Driscoll will likely have to oversee Jaguar’s transition from the Blue Oval to its new owners, whoever that may be, and will also have to deal with several more years of Jaguar running at a loss.

O’Driscoll is currently the President of Jaguar Land Rover North America and has almost 30 years of experience with the British marques both in the UK and the US.

Welcoming O’Driscoll to his new role, Jaguar and Land Rover CEO Geoff Polites commented that the new MD’s “proven in-depth experience and understanding of how to sell premium cars in the marketplace and how best to support our dealers” will be very beneficial to Jaguar ahead of the launch of several crucial new models.
