Citroën CEO awarded IMI Honorary Fellowship

Linda Jackson, Citroën's Global CEO, received an Honorary Fellowship from the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) at its annual dinner in London.

An Honorary Fellowship is the highest lifetime award the Institute can bestow on an individual within the automotive industry.

Linda received the award from IMI patron, HRH Prince Michael of Kent, and IMI CEO, Steve Nash, at the institute's annual dinner on Wednesday evening at the InterContinental London Park Lane Hotel.

Last year, Linda Jackson was honoured with the Sue Brownson Award in recognition of outstanding leadership in the automotive sector. Honorary Fellowships are decided upon by the IMI board and are the highest lifetime achievement the institute can confer on an individual, confirming Linda's contribution to the automotive industry.

Linda joined Citroën UK in 2005 as finance director, and became managing director of Citroën UK and Ireland five years later, before being appointed CEO of the Citroën brand globally on 1 June 2014. Since then, Citroën has embarked on an all-encompassing brand transformation, launching six new models in the last 24 months and taking inspiration from customers and their lifestyles, illustrated by the 'Inspired by You' brand signature.

Linda said, 'It is such an honour to receive this Honorary Fellowship and to be recognised by the IMI in this way. It's a testament to all the hard work and creativity of everyone at Citroën, and is a reflection of the brand's commitment to redefining the way people travel today through the Citroën Advanced Comfort programme.'

'I am proud to be honoured by such an esteemed organisation, which is dedicated to improving UK automotive professional standards. It's an exciting time for the motor industry, as we look toward to the future of mobility and electrification, and I hope my success can inspire young women, and young men alike, to pursue a career in this vital and ever-changing sector of the economy.'
