“Marc's experience executing sales strategies and his knowledge across Holden's distribution, sales and marketing functions makes him an exceptional choice to lead the New Zealand team.”
Ebolo said he was looking forward to joining the team and strengthening Holden's market position.
“As a business and as a brand, we have the opportunity to grow in New Zealand.
“I'm excited to showcase our range – the best we've ever had – and continue to grow sales, particulalry in the key SUV, LCV and passenger segments.”
