Bollore said Chief Creative Officer Gerry McGovern would be "developing the character, distinction and personality of each" brand and the role includes leading the design function at the marques.

"Jaguar Land Rover continues to transform its business at pace and redefine its strategic direction," the Tata Motors-owned company said in a statement.

"In his new role McGovern’s recognised creative mindset along with his business acumen will also take on the curation of the Jaguar brand with a remit to redefine its future."
