Commenting on the appointments, new managing director Nick Greenfield said, “The entire motor industry is going through one of it’s most exciting and transformational periods of change and the Yokohama brand is now more recognisable than ever, so I’m delighted to be taking up the reigns at such an important time. I would like to pay thanks to both David and Trevor for their long and loyal service helping to make Yokohama into one of the most successful and recognisable premium tyres within the UK market, and I look forward, along with Brian and the rest of the management team, to continue this amazing journey for the Yokohama brand.”
