In addition, Aston Martin has announced that Janette Green, the company’s Brand Communications Director, will become part of Sproule’s Marcoms’ organization but will have a broader role of Director of the office of CEO and will report directly to Palmer as a key advisor and lead specific strategic projects for the business.

“I am delighted that Janette has taken this additional role alongside her current brand role,” said Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer. “Her knowledge of Aston Martin and experience in both automotive and luxury arenas will be important as we embark on our most significant period of investment to date.
