David Duncan, vice president of Mini of the Americas, will take on a new role as head of BMW Group’s head of corporate and special sales, the automaker said today.
Duncan, who will begin in his new job May 1, will be succeeded by Thomas Felbermair, who had a similar role with Mini in Europe. Duncan will oversee Mini’s corporate fleet sales and European delivery, among other responsibilities.
Duncan joined BMW Group in 1998 and has led the Mini brand in North America since 2014. Mini’s U.S. new-vehicle sales grew 4.2 percent last year from 2014 to 58,514 units, though deliveries are down 15 percent this year through the first quarter.
