RIP Paul Williams

publication date: Dec 12, 2018


It is with great sadness that the death of Paul Williams has been announced by his family.


Paul, 57, fell ill suddenly and died on Sunday in a hospice where he had been for just a few days.


Paul had been involved in the motor industry since 1982 and worked for a number of brands.  

Most recently responsible for the return of SsangYong to the UK in 2007. 

Paul quit his job at SsangYong in September last year after six years with the brand.


He was managing director at Kia between 2002 and 2006, previously worked at Mitsubishi as director of sales and marketing between 1999 and 2002, and before that was MD of Daihatsu from 1995 to 1999.


The funeral arrangements will be announced in due course.
