David Girling, business head Ford EMEA at Imagination, said: "After a thorough search across Europe we have appointed Lorenzo because of his breadth of knowledge, specific strategy skills, his automotive experience and because he has a great personality."

Foffani commented: "I welcome the opportunity of joining Imagination and to be in London, the centre of the creative world. Imagination offers a broad set of communication channels that requires strategic input and I particularly look forward to making an impact on the Ford business in Europe."
