Leading the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Middle East operation is James Crichton, Regional Director, who was appointed earlier this year. James is supported by a core team that includes Marcus Reil, Regional Marketing Manager; Ayman Ghanem, Regional Sales Manager; Alaa Tarabay, Corporate Communications Manager; Mohamed Yousry, Regional After sales Manager; Ernst Papke, Regional Support Manager and Louise Knudsen, Administration and Accounts Specialist.

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars CEO, Torsten Müller-Ötvös, said, “The Middle East region is one of our most important markets and is key to the growth of the brand worldwide. Three out of the top ten selling dealerships in the world are located in the Middle East and the region accounted for 20% of the marque’s total global sales last year.”

“Boosted by our best sales results ever in the Middle East to date, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars felt the time was right to put in place a focused team to support our commitment to the region,” added Müller-Ötvös.

Sales in the Middle East in the last 10 months of the year grew by over 160%.

“Our key priorities will be to work closely with our regional dealer network to support their continued investment in the brand and to further Rolls-Royce’s leading position as the pinnacle luxury automotive manufacturer in the Middle East,” said James Crichton, Regional Director, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.
