Browning leaves Jaguar!
A day after Ford Motor Company boss Jacques Nasser was removed from office in the United States of America, Jaguar Cars managing-director Jonathan Browning has left the company and the suggestion is that others in the company may be on the way out as well because of plans to introduce a new committee to oversee Jaguar, Land Rover and Aston Martin. This will be headed by Bob Dover, the managing director of Land Rover.
The committee is the idea of Dr. Wolfgang Reitzle, who is trying to cut costs by centralizing parts supply and other services. Reitzle says that the companies will remain separate - but Browning obviously did not agree.
