Polestar has brought in a new sales boss. They're getting experience from a new executive who has worked with Jaguar Land Rover, PSA, Mercedes-Benz, and Toyota.

Mike Whittington is the latest addition to the Polestar team, as the leader of Global Sales Operations. That means it's his job to help shape the company's retail operation as they begin to launch new models and develop a retail footprint.

"We defined our retail strategy and are now developing the global retail network we need. Polestar wants to interact with its customers online and face-to-face, and we have begun engaging with the dealer operators who will represent Polestar around the world. Mike’s experience and expertise will help us realise our objectives and keep us on the path to success," said CEO Thomas Ingenlath.

Whittington has been in the industry for more than 20 years, working in global infrastructure, e-commerce, and new vehicle introductions. "The opportunity to join Polestar as a new electric performance brand is very exciting. Combining electrification with highly desirable performance cars, in a new company that has clear and ambitious goals, especially on the sales side, is the sort of challenge I welcome with open arms," he said.
