Sarah Simpson will join Porsche Cars Great Britain as Chief Executive Officer on 1 September, taking over from Marcus Eckermann, who is set to take up a new role within Porsche AG.
Due to the huge Germany-wide interest, almost 4,000 golfers took part in this year’s 47 tournaments where there were special hygiene measures in place. The top golfers at the qualifying competitions met last weekend at the Germany Final held at the Frankfurt Golf Club (net B and gross) and the Golf Club Neuhof (net C and A) to determine, in four separate competitions, the participants for the coming year’s Porsche Golf Cup World Final in Mallorca.
“Sarah Simpson has worldwide experience in marketing and sales of premium vehicles,” says Barbara Frenkel, Vice President Region Europe at Porsche AG. “With this extensive knowledge, she will further strengthen our position in Great Britain.”
Sarah Simpson has worked for the Volkswagen Group for more than 20 years, the past decade with Bentley Motors. Joining the company as Operations Director, Simpson became Regional Director for Bentley’s home market, the UK in 2014. Throughout the past seven years, she has assumed responsibility for other international regions, firstly adding Asia Pacific to her leadership role, before becoming Regional Director for UK, Middle East, Africa and India in January 2020.
