Carl Peter Forster
Back in November, it was first reported that former Opel CEO Carl-Peter Forster would join Tata Motors to run its British operations at Jaguar-Land Rover. While nothing came of that rumor, last week Forster was named as the new CEO of the parent company Tata Motors with responsibility for all of its automotive operations including JLR.
It appears that outgoing Opel chief Carl-Peter Forster may have already lined up a new gig for himself. According to The Times of London, Forster will become an employee of Tata Motors and take the top job at Jaguar-Land Rover. If this appointment comes through, it will be something of a homecoming for Forster who was born and raised in London. Additionally, Forster also ran production at BMW when it owned the late Rover Group.
