"We are very excited and proud that Jaguar Land Rover has selected The Premier Collection to represent their iconic brands in Westchester County," said Tom Coughlin, Chairman and CEO, of The Premier Collection. "This announcement today is really due to the vision of three Jaguar Land Rover executives and their teams.

  • Mr. Ratan Tata, former Chairman and CEO of Tata Group, had the vision to purchase Jaguar Land Rover during the dark days of 2008, and he kept the company's product development program going despite the difficulties faced by all companies during the subsequent severe recession. This has resulted in the introduction this week of the very special new Range Rover Sport, the recent introduction of the all new Range Rover, the addition of all-wheel drive to Jaguar sedans, the soon to be introduced Jaguar F-Type and the exhilarating line-up of vehicles being displayed by Jaguar Land Rover at the 2013 New York International Automobile Show.
  • Dr. Ralf Speth, President and CEO of Jaguar Land Rover, has a distinctive automotive engineering background, and it is well demonstrated by the inspiring quality and handling characteristics of the Jaguars and Land Rovers that are being developed under his direction. Ralf provides the kind of vision and leadership that makes it possible for Jaguar Land Rover dealers to build new facilities and grow Jaguar Land Rover's business.
  • Mr. Andy Goss and his team have the ability to visualize what is needed to grow the Jaguar Land Rover business in the United States. The plans we are announcing today are a direct result of Andy's vision for Westchester County, and we thank him for selecting The Premier Collection as the firm with which Jaguar Land Rover would plan to more than double the Company's business over the next six years."

"We are thrilled that The Premier Collection is adding two new Jaguar franchises to their current Land Rover operations enhancing our Jaguar Land Rover representation in the affluent Westchester, NY region," said Andy Goss, President of Jaguar Land Rover North America. "As Jaguar Land Rover is investing billions of dollars a year on our product growth offensive, it's critical that our retail network also evolve to the future with modern Jaguar Land Rover facilities that have the footprint and quality experience to properly present these two growing luxury brands. On behalf of all of us at Jaguar Land Rover, we congratulate The Premier Collection organization for taking this bold step forward in the marketplace and building on the momentum of both the Jaguar and Land Rover brands."
