Senior Specialist Used Car
  • What is your role within TME?

  • I’m Pierre-Luc, I’m from France, and I’m a Senior Specialist responsible for our used car programme - that’s Toyota and Lexus. I’ve always been passionate about cars. It’s what has driven my careers focus and I have been in the automotive business for over ten years, working with Nissan, Chrysler Renault and Fiat.  
  • How and why did you join Toyota?

  • I’ve been with TME for three years now and its flown past. I’ve always liked Toyota – my first car was a Lexus and I loved it. My career has been in automotive since University – getting Internships before a graduate post with Renault. I moved to Belgium in 2016 for family reasons and discovered that The European HQ of Toyota – TME – was in Brussels. I waited the ideal role came up that matched my profile and experience and applied, and now I’m very happy to be here.  
  • Can you briefly describe your journey through Toyota until now? 

  • I have a lot of experience in marketing cars and in connected services and multimedia, so Toyota’s new vision appeals to me. It’s a fascinating job as you are always learning. I travel a lot in for TME spending a day a week in an NMSE in France and in Spain, which is something I enjoy, seeing how the different markets work. 
  • What's it like to work at TME?

  • The culture here is great. We are very diverse and inclusive, with people from all over the world. People have a lot of respect for each other here. I feel we are heard; we are listened to, and our ideas accepted and that is important to me. It helped me to feel very welcome and to fit in quickly, and I have made more than a few friends here.   
  • What do you enjoy most about your job? 

  • I like that Toyota is changing to a mobility company and is very involved in connected technologies. In automotive you have to be aware of environmental impacts so it’s good to know I work for a company actually doing something about that. I’m really proud of the launch of the new Mirai and talk to everyone about it – it would be great to drive a hydrogen car like that as its an ambassador for our advanced technology and leadership.  
  • What three words best describe working at Toyota? 

  • Structured, Sustainable, Opportunity.
