Tozer’s departure is an abrupt one, as he was recently on hand to represent Vauxhall at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show to help launch the 2016 Opel-Vauxhall Astra.
Tozer was appointed to the position in February of 2014, and has reportedly left the role to “pursue his career outside of General Motors.” His replacement will be Rory Harvey, who previously headed the Chevrolet brand in the UK. Harvey will, by consequence, leave his role as Opel Executive Director of Sales for Opel Europe.
At the time, the only additional information known on Tozer’s resignation is it does not have anything to do with the current-ongoing Volkswagen scandal, according to Vauxhall.
Rory will begin his new role on September 29.
