Careers: how are you settling in?

Helen Webb, marketing manager, Provecta Car Plan

You’ve worked in several sectors – how are you finding the fleet industry?

Very enjoyable. With a love of cars and a career in business to business marketing, it is an ideal role for me.

What has been the best part of your job so far?

I have a keen interest in the environment, so proving that employee car ownership schemes are kinder to the environment because they encourage “personally accountable motoring” has been particularly rewarding. As ECOS drivers are the owners of the vehicle, they usually choose more economical models and cut down on the number of journeys they make.

What obstacles have you come up against?

Misconceptions about employee car ownership schemes and how those that are not HMRC approved and arms length like Provecta’s are tarnishing what is an essential addition to the fleet financing product range.

Are you working on anything major at the moment?

Yes, a top secret White Paper, a solution to the AMAPs debate and an ECO product that incentivises drivers to opt for lower emission cars.Watch this space!
