Page reportedly has more than 30 years’ experience in automotive design, most recently working for Volvo Group in a number of roles, including Head of Global Design and UX. Before Volvo, Page worked as Head of Interior Design for Bentley between 2001 and 2013.

Adrian Hallmark, Bentley Chairman and CEO, said: “I am pleased to welcome Robin back to Bentley having worked with him during a truly formative period in the history of Bentley Motors, launching the sector-defining Continental GT.

“He joins at a time when we are shaping an even greater story as we accelerate our journey to full electrification by 2030. His previous experiences from innovative automotive design, combined with a strong understanding of the Bentley brand means he is perfectly positioned to enable us to achieve our future ambitions as the leader in sustainable luxury mobility.”

Page will lead a team of around 50 design experts with responsibility for the exterior, interior and colour and trim design for the full current and future Bentley product portfolio, concept and showcars.

He said: “Having worked for 17 years at Bentley, I have always held a strong connection to the brand and kept a close eye on its evolution. To return and have the opportunity to help set the design language for the first Bentley BEVs, redefining the rules while keeping continuity to the past and present, is a challenge I am privileged to lead.”
