Lynn Calder has been appointed as the new Chief Executive Officer

Lynn, an experienced INEOS Group executive, took up her new role with immediate effect in late December after six years in the INEOS Group, including multiple CEO roles for various divisions. She was formerly in private equity.
INEOS Automotive says Lynn’s appointment completes a new, strengthened leadership team for the company, marking the transition from engineering project to commercial business.
Following this appointment, Hans-Peter Pessler – formerly a senior executive from Magna Steyr in Austria that manufactured the G-Wagon for Mercedes – has taken up a new permanent role as Chief Operations Officer of INEOS Automotive, responsible for all engineering and operations.
Phillippe Steyer meanwhile remains as President of INEOS Automotive SAS, responsible for manufacturing, SHE (Safety, Health and Environmental management) and supply chain. 
“We are in the automotive industry for the long haul. The team has done a great job leading the engineering programme and overseeing the set-up of manufacturing. Now, as it goes into full commercial mode, Lynn and Hans-Peter will take us forward in the next stage of the company’s development,” INEOS Automotive Limited Chairman, Ashely Reed, said.
“It is an exciting time to be taking the reins,” Lynn said.
“The team and the Grenadier itself have come a long way, and yet we’re still only at the beginning of creating a global automotive business. I love a challenge, and with bold plans for the future, I’m looking forward to the adventure ahead.”  
Order books for INEOS Automotive’s Grenadier are now open and production has commenced. Combining rugged British spirit and design with German engineering rigour, INEOS Automotive sys the Grenadier will be a truly uncompromising 4×4 built from the ground up.
