DIRECTOR OF AUDIT, COMPLIANCE, ETHICS & RISK

Guy took on the role of Director of Audit, Compliance, Ethics & Risk in April 2021, and is responsible for ensuring Jaguar Land Rover complies with the highest corporate standards.


Guy is a Chartered Accountant and has spent over 30 years working in auditing, compliance, and risk for a range of global companies across a variety of sectors, including automotive, aerospace, pharmaceutical, telecoms, and utilities.

Integrity is a core value for Guy, and he aims to inspire people to do the right thing, ask for advice if they’re unsure of what to do, and speak up if they think something is wrong. Guy seeks to encourage and facilitate informed transparent risk-based decision making to assist Jaguar Land Rover in having effective assurance over the management of its risks.


Guy was born in Rutland and attended Stamford School in Lincolnshire, before studying Politics & History at the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Outside of work he is married with a son at university, and enjoys walks with his dogs, cooking, and cycling.
