Hunt joins Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles Ireland

Volkswagen Group Ireland has appointed Paul Hunt as its new brand director for Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles Ireland.

He succeeds Alan Bateson who was recently appointed brand director for Volkswagen Passenger Cars.

Hunt joins the brand from his previous role as head of service market for Volkswagen Group Ireland.

In his new role, Hunt will be responsible for leading the brand as it transitions towards its ambitious e-mobility goals while continuing to meet the needs of commercial vehicle buyers of all varieties.

Hunt boasts more than two decades working in both the UK and Ireland motor trades, having started out as a graduate recruit with Peugeot in 2002.

He joined Volkswagen Group Ireland in 2011 as planning manager for Volkswagen Passenger Cars, progressing to head of product and planning and then head of sales before taking over as country MD for Fiat-Chrysler in 2016.

Hunt re-joined Volkswagen Group Ireland in 2019 as part of the group aftersales management team.

‚ÄúVans are the lifeblood of Irish industry but Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles are beloved among buyers of all backgrounds. I look forward to working closely with our talented team of retailers to give Irish customers the van buying experience they deserve,” Paul Hunt said.
