I wish him the very best for a well-deserved retirement.”Purves said, “It has been a privilege and an honor to lead Rolls-Royce, particularly at this exciting point in the company’s history. I have always felt a special connection with Rolls-Royce, having started my career in the car division and it is very special to be retiring having headed this great company. I have every confidence in the future success of the company in the hands of its new CEO.”Purves succeeded Robertson as CEO of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars in July 2008.
