Fleet CV: Steve Maltby, managing director, Paragon Fleet Solutions

Describe your new role.

As managing director of Paragon Fleet Solutions, which is part of the Paragon group, my role is to further develop the business, ensuring that it recognises the changing needs of our clients with specific regard to the service we provide to our customers.

What is your favourite aspect of the job?

I really enjoy working with our employees to deliver a high-quality service to our customers – vehicle manufacturers, leasing and daily rental companies.

Working with major organisations means that my job is very diverse and, as a business, we are exposed to a wide range of challenges every single day.

And your least favourite?

It’s not job-related but I’m based at Heyford Park in Oxfordshire and there are too many Oxford United Football Club fans around for my liking who I have to deal with.

I support both Reading and Chelsea.

How do you think the fleet sector is changing?

In the medium to long term, the fleet industry and the entire automotive sector
will need to embrace emerging technologies, which will ultimately result in fleets which are more environmentally sensitive while offering a strong performance.
