  • REPLACES CAREN JOCHNER WHO MOVED TO HEAD OF GLOBAL BRAND EXPERIENCE POSITION IN APRIL 

(Crewe, 19 July 2021).- Bentley Motors has announced the appointment of Amel Boubaaya as Head of Marketing and Communications for Europe, starting today. Amel replaces Caren Jochner who in April became Bentley’s Head of Global Brand Experience.   

Amel will report jointly to Balazs Rooz, Regional Director, Europe and Wayne Bruce, Director of Communications. Commenting on the appointment, Wayne said:   

“I am delighted to welcome Amel to Bentley and to be working together so closely once again. Amel brings a deep-rooted understanding of communications and customers in the luxury sector and a true passion for automotive, honed over many years of experience working in various markets around the world. I look forward to working together to develop and deliver our activities throughout the key European region as we look to transform our global business to become the leader in sustainable luxury mobility.”

Amel joins Bentley having spent 15 years in automotive communications, most recently as Head of PR for Europe, Middle East and Africa for McLaren Automotive. Amel’s 10 year spell at McLaren included roles as Head of Lifestyle and European Communications and her starting position, European Communications and PR Manager.   

Amel comments:   

“I am excited to be joining the journey that Bentley has just embarked upon with the well-defined Beyond100 strategy, in the most complex and demanding region in the world. I am looking forward to taking up this challenge and feel inspired by the way Bentley considers and treats the sustainability theme in every respect, a topic dear to my heart since its early stages decades ago now.”   

Prior to Amel’s time with the performance marque, she worked in the communications department for both Infiniti Europe and Renault Sport Technologies.
