Mark Cassidy, corporate sales manager, Inchcape Fleet Solutions
How does your new role differ from your last job at Lex?
My previous role was very much focused on managing a relationship and delivering on a pre-set agenda. This new role allows me the freedom to concentrate on developing relationships from scratch.
How was your first day?
Everything that I had been promised was ready for me to collect, which is always a promising sign.
Have you had a bad day yet?
Not yet. Hopefully I have enough experience to spot one coming and work through it.
What has been your greatest challenge so far?
I sat a two-hour examination on day 16 of my induction.
And your greatest achievement?
I have a lot of industry knowledge and it’s great when colleagues ask for my opinion and use me to understand what the competition’s doing.
What are you enjoying most about the role?
The autonomy to re-open past relationships and seek future opportunities to work together. There are so many avenues to investigate within fleet.
