SYDNEY – Feb 19, 2014: Kia Motors Australia Chief Operating Officer, Tony Barlow, will leave the company on February 28 to pursue a new career opportunity within the automotive industry.

“In his three and a half years with Kia, Tony has contributed significantly to the building of our sales and brand presence in Australia, and he has left our company in a strong position to prosper even more going forward,” KMAu President and CEO SH Cho said. “I wish to personally thank him for his contribution and efforts, and his commitment to the Kia brand and culture.”

Mr Barlow said the decision to leave was not an easy one.

“It was a very difficult decision to make, but it is an extraordinary opportunity and a challenge I look forward to,” Mr Barlow said. “I leave Kia with considerable regret and enormous respect for Mr Cho and the organisation.”

Mr Barlow joined KMAu on September 1, 2010. His last day will be February 28.
