MIKE HAWES

Chief Ex­ec­u­tive, So­ci­ety of Mo­tor Man­u­fac­tur­ers and Traders ( SMMT)

Auto Express - - The Brit List 2018 -

THESE are busy times at the SMMT, which rep­re­sents the UK’S car man­u­fac­tur­ers and re­tail­ers, with the col­lapse of diesel sales and Brexit loom­ing. Boss Mike Hawes has charted a care­ful path through the chop­pi­est waters so far, but the stormy times ahead may call for some tough decisions. At some point in the next 12 months, he will al­most cer­tainly have to fall out with some­one – be it unions, Govern­ment or the con­sumer. How he deals with this may prove the ul­ti­mate test of his lead­er­ship.
