The British automaker has seen an increase of 25 percent in its sales this year in the U.S., much thanks to its new F-Type, and the addition of Curry is a major one. Curry originally began his automotive career working in public relations at Land Rover North America, and also enjoyed a stint as the vice president of automotive marketing for XM Satellite Radio.

“Jeff Curry is a major addition to our North American leadership team as the head of Jaguar at a time of tremendous opportunity for the brand,” Goss said. “Jeff brings with him extensive automotive and luxury marketing experience, critical expertise in leading-edge technologies and a personal passion for automobiles.”
