Continental Tyre Group Ltd has appointed a new passenger sales director to take over from Phil Scanlan, who retires from the company after 30 years.

Based at the German tyre manufacturer’s UK head office in West Drayton, Fremenau will have overall responsibility for profitable sales and account management of independent, regional, national and wholesale accounts in the UK and ROI. His passenger experience with all customer groups will prove of great value to the business.

“I am delighted to join Continental [Tyre Group] for 2016 as passenger sales director and really look forward to continuing the successes of my predecessor for Continental and its brands within the UK and Ireland”, Klaus Fremenau commented.

Klaus Fremenau is married and lives in Marlow, Buckinghamshire. In his spare time he enjoys hiking, travelling and running.
