Gerry Wood, executive chairman of Calgary’s Wood Automotive Group, has named sons Rory and Cailean as the company’s first vice-presidents.
Cailean assumes the new role of vice-president sales and marketing while Rory has been appointed vice-president of sales and service.
“Rory and Cailean have worked hard to earn these promotions,” said Wood, company founder.
“They have seen almost everything you can in the auto business and now they’ll be an important part of our leadership team as our industry enters the new era of sustainability, EVs and self-driving cars.”
They will report to group COO Dick Lau who said the new positions were created as the company continues to grow “and we need more horsepower at the executive level.”
