Sarah Timmermans leaves Opel Belgium

There has been a major change at the top of Opel Belgium. Sarah Timmermans, who had been at the head of the enterprise since July 2017, left the company at the end of the year and has joined Carglass Belux as Operations Director. In this new post she will be responsible for windows and bodywork, and will report directly to Managing Director Guido De Paepe.

Sarah Timmermans’ previous career in the automobile industry began at Ford in various operational and commercial roles, before continuing at Opel where she was first in charge of Commercial Vehicles and then Managing Director. In this latter role she was in charge during the move of Opel into the PSA group.

At Opel Belgium, Michel Vercruyssen, currently Marketing Manager of Opel Netherlands, now succeeds Sarah Timmermans as Managing Director of Opel Belgium. He has previously worked in Sales & Marketing in a number of countries.
