LONDON -- Bentley said Jaguar Land Rover's head of global strategy, Adrian Hallmark, will become the brand's CEO as part of a reshuffle that also brings in new board members for engineering, sales and marketing and human resources. Hallmark, 55, will succeed Wolfgang Duerheimer, 59, on Feb. 1, Bentley said in a statement on Friday. Duerheimer is retiring as CEO of Bentley and head of Bugatti but will continue to advise Bentley parent, Volkswagen Group, on motor sports.
Both Vauxhall and PSA cited declining sales in the compact segment as a reason for cutting 400 jobs at the UK factory that builds Astra cars. That would make sense if customers were turning away from the cars built in the plant at Ellesmere Port, northwest England -- but they're not. Seven out of 10 cars built there are Astra Sports Tourer wagons and sales of those grew 17 percent to 66,199 across Europe through August.
The UK joining the North American Free Trade Agreement zone is an idea reportedly being floated as an alternative if Britain crashes out of the European Union in 2019 without a trade deal with its European neighbors. Leaving aside the fact that NAFTA itself is under threat, the idea has some merit for the car industry, at least on paper. The U.S. imports more British-built cars than any other country and numbers are growing — up 47 percent last year to just under 200,000.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
