How are you settling in?


Daniel Parnell, key account manager finance

How was your first week in the new job?
Exciting and educational. The highlight of the week, though, was certainly taking delivery of my new company car.

How does your new role differ from your previous job on the CAP sales team?
The real advantage of being a key account manager is the opportunity to develop customer relationships into real partnerships with shared goals and ambitions.

What are you working on at the moment?
Gearing customers up to deal with Basel II compliance by understanding risk exposure.

How is the fleet funding sector changing right now?
I think everyone is well aware of the current market pressures – the knock-on effect is the necessity for smarter business processes, which means more efficiency and an in-depth understanding of risk.

How do you relax after work?
Being a guitarist in indie rock band “The Bribes” takes up a lot of time, but I’m most relaxed watching a DVD with my wife while enjoying a takeaway and an Australian red.
