Rolls-Royce Appoints Giles Taylor as New Design Director

Luxury carmaker Rolls-Royce has just appointed Giles Taylor as the new Design Director, effective July 1, 2012.

Taylor will be replacing Ian Cameron, who is retiring after holding the position with Rolls-Royce since 1999. After studying design in the United Kingdom, Taylor, 44, spent ten years as an executive designer in the British car industry and acted as head of design for two model series at Jaguar before joining Rolls-Royce in April 2011 as Head of Exterior Design.

Taylor will report to Adrian van Hooydonk, Senior Vice President BMW Group Design.

CEO of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, Torsten Müller-Ötvös, said, “I would like to thank Ian Cameron for his contribution to the resurgence of the Rolls-Royce marque.  His legendary design capabilities combined with his passion for the company’s distinguished heritage have made him an integral part of the success of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars since the brand was acquired by the BMW Group.  As his successor, Giles Taylor has a deep knowledge of emotive brands in the luxury segment and a proven track record, and is the perfect choice to lead the Rolls-Royce design team to future success.”
