Mark Bennett has been appointed by AMT Group, the independent Leeds headquartered vehicle solutions group, as business development manager across its vehicle rental, contract hire and specialist car sales divisions in the north.
He has 18 years’ B2B sales experience building relationships with a comprehensive range of commercial customers from SMEs to large international blue chip organisations.
Bennett has held a variety of sales roles including working for Vision Support Services Group, Keramikos, Northgate Vehicle Rental and SPS EU.
Based at AMT’s Manchester Stockport rental facility, he will focus on developing sales and building the customer base in both the corporate and leisure markets in the north west for AMT’s suite of vehicle options including rental, contract hire and specialist car sales.
Neil McGawley, managing director of AMT Group, said: “With his strong track record in business development and his in depth knowledge of the motor industry, Mark will be a real boost to the team.
"Building on our strong presence in Manchester and Birmingham, he will help us to engage with businesses and personal clients, whether renting, leasing or buying, as we continue to establish ourselves as the leading name in the prestige and specialist vehicles sector.”
Established in 1995, AMT Group now has fleet of more than 1,500 prestige and specialist vehicles.
The privately-owned business has eight vehicle rental locations from Scotland to the South East, including a new facility in Stockport which opened last December following a £1.1m investment.
It employs 190 staff around the UK.
