Hyundai Motor UK has appointed Val Geary as rental and Motability manager, with the aim of accelerating the manufacturer’s growth in the rental and Motability markets.
Hyundai’s sales to the important Motability market have grown in line with the company’s overall volumes in recent years.
Part of Geary’s new responsibilities will be to ensure the best product mix within both rental and Motability fleets, as well as protecting and enhancing residual values.
In addition to securing new business, Geary will work to ensure the satisfaction of existing customers, to ensure retention and repeat business.
Martin Wilson, fleet director at Hyundai Motor UK, said: “We are pleased to welcome Val as rental and Motability manager, further strengthening our team.
“Val brings some great experience from working at Motability Operations, his insight will be invaluable as Hyundai expands its presence in these markets.”
Over five years at Motability Operations, Geary progressed to the role of manufacturer account manager after starting in a graduate role in 2010.
He joins the Hyundai Motor UK fleet team, which has enjoyed great success so far this year, with fleet sales growing 10% in the first seven months of 2015.
