I want to thank Karl Howkins for his leadership with us in a key role in the business and I wish him well in his new venture.”

Karl Howkins said, “It is been an honour and privilege to lead the iconic Citroën brand in the UK. In particular, I would like to pay tribute to the excellent team. I will miss them immensely.”
