Mazda's European fleet branch announces new appointment
Mr Lacombe has a decade of experience in the OEM, supplier and automotive aftermarket industries. His most recent positions were in Leverkusen as Mazda's business manager for South West Europe, and as a business strategy financial analyst.
Prior to that, he was financial controller for a leading automotive supplier's German and French organisations.
Mr Lacombe holds two Master's Degrees – in Mechanical Engineering from the Institut National Polytechnique de Grenoble (INPG), and in "Strategy and International Business Management" from the ESSEC Business School in France.
'Gregoire Lacombe will play an important role in optimising the residual value of our vehicle line-up,' said Christian Blank, director of European Fleet Operations at Mazda Motor Europe. 'A focus on managing residual value will make our current line-up – one of Europe's best at combining high design appeal, low consumption and emissions with sporty driving fun – very attractive to blue-chip fleet customers.'
