Van Insurance Brokers Welcome Peugeot Appointment

FLINT, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Jan. 25, 2010) - Leading van insurance brokers Staveley Head have welcomed the appointment of Gilles Vidal to the position of Design Director at French manufacturers Peugeot. Vidal, who has been with the manufacturer since 1996 will take up his post on the 4th January. This promotion is thanks to his hard work in creating a new brand for the company, which will be officially launched later in the month.

Since the early 1950s, Peugeot enjoyed a very successful partnership with the Italian design house Pininfarina, which lasted several decades. In the 1980s, however, the manufacturer brought design in house. This was initially a success with early models showing much of the same verve as those penned by Pininfarina, however, it has been felt that subsequent models just don't seem to have the same panache as the old ones.

It is hoped that this will be improved by the appointment of Vidal to the post of Design Director. A spokesperson for Flintshire-based Staveley Head commented:

"Typically, French cars and vans have a flair and innovation that vehicles from other countries fail to match. In recent years, however, it has been felt that Peugeot has been slipping behind rivals such as Renault and Citroen in terms of the quality of its designs. Hopefully, this appointment will help to improve that situation."
