Rogers will be passed the baton from Dr Wolfgang Ziebart (who’s staying with the company) in April, and will assume responsibilities for JLR’s engineering operations globally.
‘Nick has worked for Jaguar Land Rover for more than 30 years and has broad experience across engineering, manufacturing and product delivery,’ said Dr Ralf Speth. ‘His experience, skills, passion and dedication to Jaguar Land Rover will make him a great leader for the Engineering team.’
LRO understands that Rogers has so far been responsible for the development of the next-generation Defender. We also gather that he keeps a number of Land Rovers at home, including a Range Rover Classic and a Series I. Clearly a man with taste, we’re pleased to say.
