Proton Cars National Sales Manager Resigns

October 24th, 2007

Proton Cars Australia has announced the resignation of its national sales manager, Chris Locantro, who has stepped down due to personal reasons.

Mr Locantro has been national sales manager for the past 12 months having taken over from Steven Thomas.

According to Proton Cars Australia managing director John Startari, Chris has made the decision to resign for personal reasons after recent serious illness and has thanked his work colleagues at Proton as well as the entire Proton dealer network for their support and good wishes in that time.

"Proton thanks Chris for his efforts over the past 12 months as sales manager and his time as regional manager prior to that and we have benefited greatly from his experience and enthusiasm during that time, we wish him well for the future," said Mr Startari.

A replacement for Mr Locantro will be appointed in the coming weeks.

Proton Cars Australia has had a strong sales year and is currently up 31 percent for the nine months to the end of September compared with the same period last year.

Proton has recently continued expansion of its dealer sales network with two new dealers coming on board in the Sydney metropolitan area and the regional centre of Taree on the NSW mid north coast.

Proton's dealer network currently stands at 41 nationally and will continue to expand this year with a number of other new locations expected to come on stream over the coming months.
