LeasePlan UK has announced three new appointments to boost teams across the business.

Rachel Hawthorne joins the business as head of marketing; Neill Emmet joins as digital marketing manager; and Oliver Boots has moved internally to become brand director at Automotive Leasing.

Hawthorne joins from Experian Consumer Services, and will take responsibility for LeasePlan UK’s marketing activity. She brings a wealth of digital marketing and leadership experience from her time within the financial services and insurance industries and will report into Lesley Slater, business development director.

Emmett joins the digital marketing team from Fidelity Worldwide Investment and reports to Hawthorne. He is a proactive online marketer with over 16 years’ experience of delivering marketing campaigns within the professional and financial services industries.

Boots has been appointed as brand director at Automotive Leasing, LeasePlan’s specialist public sector division, from his current role as head of product services within the business development division.
