Simon Sproule

Global Director of Marketing & Communications
Aston Martin

Simon Sproule has built a reputation as one of the automotive sector’s smartest PR practitioners, and left Tesla last year to become global head of marketing and communications at Aston Martin. Prior to Tesla, Sproule spent several years at Nissan, where he became one of the first executives to oversee an integrated PR and marketing function. Sproule was associated with Nissan since joining the company in 2003, broken only by a two-month stint as Microsoft’s global communications director. A keen advocate of ‘brand journalism’, Sproule’s work at Aston Martin is likely to involve a sharper content focus for a luxury brand that is best known for its association with James Bond.
