(L-R) Sanjiv Shah CEO Inchcape Kenya & Uganda & Richard Gouverneur, Managing Director of Jaguar Land Rover South Africa and sub-Sahara Africa
Inchcape has been appointed as the new Jaguar Land Rover distributors for Kenya beginning today August
The appointment of Inchcape is the result of a tender process after Jaguar Land Rover concluded its distribution agreement with RMA Kenya. RAM exited the Kenyan market after 5 years. They took over from CMC Holdings in 2013.
Inchcape will take over the RMA Kenya showroom as well as a planned new workshop facility. The company will apparently also retain most of the RMA employees. Sanjiv Shah, the former CEO of RMA Kenya, will now serve as the Inchcape CEO for Kenya & Uganda.
Inchape is a UK multinational that sells cars brands that include: Mercedes Benz, Toyota, Audi and BMW in 31 countries. It now represents the Jaguar and Land Rover brands in 12 markets. Kenya is Inchcape’s second market in Africa after Ethiopia where it sells car brands such as Toyota and Hino.
