Citroen CEO Linda Jackson

Managing director of PSA Peugeot-Citroën’s Citroën UK & Ireland Linda Jackson will now have oversight over the entire Citroën brand as its first-ever female CEO.

Autoblog reports Jackson, who managed the brand’s presence across the Channel since 2010, will take her new role as outgoing CEO Fréderic Banzet takes up a senior position in Peugeot’s holding group Société foncière financière et de participations (FPP). Jackson also brings 35 years of financial and commercial experience in the automotive industry to the table.

Both Jackson and Citroën deputy CEO Yves Bonnefont — who will head the DS diffusion line — will take their new roles June 1, and both will report directly to new PSA CEO Carlos Tavares as members of the automaker’s executive committee. A replacement for Jackson will be announced at a later date.

    So what that really means is that PSA is about to face a monumental disaster through either a shocking financial disclosure of devastating proportion or a long-hidden safety issue that will cause them to fail. Right?
