    She's got some work to do. Sales were down 34% in April and so far this year their down 19%, in a market that has declined 8% in 2019. Yes, granted this hasn't happened under her watch, but the outgoing MD, Andrew Moore (originally Suzuki Australia) hasn't left her with a great start and so she'll need to hit the ground running and stop the huge declines. This year could see the brand sell under 10,000 vehciles for the first time in a very long time!

    Renault Australia has a somewhat aging lineup and apart from it's LCV range and the Koleos SUV, it really doesn't have much to tempt buyers. The only new release slated for 2019 is the midsize Kadjar SUV, but will that attract much attention and will it add a lift to Renault's declining sales? There could also be the Arkana SUV/Coupe thingy, which is a maybe now that's it's slated for production in South Korea, but I don't think that will add any significant volume?
