Jaguar Land Rover Australia today announced Christopher Lidis will be taking the helm from December 1 as the company’s new General Manager. Lidis replaces Dorian Lapthorne who transferred to the Jaguar Brand Manager’s role in China last September.

 

Jag’s Managing Director, David Blackhall said that Lidis represented the ideal combination of deep industry experience and maturity overlaid with the important leadership skills needed to guide the brand to the ‘niche premium’ positioning it is targeting over the next few years.

The new General Manager joined Ford Australia as a graduate trainee, filling many varied roles for the company, and was recently Ford’s Regional Manager. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics and Politics and an MBA from Macquarie.

“Chris ticked every box for us – outstanding academic qualifications, high quality Ford experience and training here and abroad, strong dealer expertise, broadening experience in the credit company and most of all a proven track record in nurturing, mentoring and managing young teams,” Blackhall said.
