Professor Gerry McGovern OBE

Professor Gerry McGovern OBE has been recognised as one of the most awarded designers in the world. Currently Chief Creative Officer at Land Rover and a board level executive of the Jaguar Land Rover Company, Gerry’s vision of the potential for Land Rover began with the critically acclaimed Range Rover Evoque in 2010.

McGovern has been instrumental in spearheading the design and brand strategy for the Land Rover product portfolio which has brought about its transformation from a specialist 4x4 manufacturer to the purveyor of the most desirable premium and luxury SUVs on the planet.

His predominately Modernist Design philosophy has been successfully executed in harmony with the brand’s global appeal while also significantly building its equity, ensuring a design-led culture is embedded into the very core of the business.

McGovern uses his considerable creative intellect to champion the relevance of design and its ability to enrich lives. ‘True desirability can only be achieved with products that have a strong positive emotional connection with the customer! Design excellence being its conduit,’ he says.
