Careers: Settling in

Neil Campbell, business development director,

How was your first day?
Interesting! Autoquake is a technology company that remarkets fleet cars, so I had to get my head around the IT guys’ role in the business as well as how I would bring my own skills to the company.

Have you settled in now?
Yes. Everyone within the company has been very encouraging and supportive.

How does your new role differ from your previous job at EurotaxGlass’s?
I’m back on the front line and in a direct sales role, as opposed to working with account managers.

What’s been your biggest challenge at Autoquake?
Convincing the leasing community that the internet will become part of the future for the buying and selling of fleet vehicles.

What are you working on at the moment?
We have a couple of large contracts to close. Getting contracts concluded with the risk departments of financial firms is never a “quick win”.

What do you do to unwind?
I’m chairman of my local rugby club. I love putting something back into the club after 25 years of playing the game.
