MEDIA ADVISORY - NOT FOR PUBLICATION - Matthew Bendall leaves Groupe Renault

Matthew Bendall, Head of Press & PR, Groupe Renault UK & Ireland has decided to leave the company with immediate effect in order to pursue a new opportunity within the automotive industry.

Matthew had been with Groupe Renault for over eleven years – first from 2005 to 2010 and then again from 2014 until now.  His first role in Communications was as Press Fleet & Events Manager in 2009, before returning in 2014 as Press Relations Manager, and then moving into his current role in early 2018.    

Vincent Tourette, Managing Director, Groupe Renault, UK & Ireland commented: “Matthew was instrumental in the successful launch of many new Renault, Dacia and Alpine models during his time with the company.  His passion for these brands, and the wider automotive industry, will, I’m sure, have been known to many of you. I would like to thank him on behalf of Groupe Renault UK & Ireland for his immense contribution during his time here and wish him well for the future.”

An announcement will be made in due course about a replacement.  In the interim, Lauren Prema, Press Relations Manager, will be the main point of contact for all Press & PR activities.
