Skoda appoints new fleet sales manager

Škoda appoints new fleet sales manager James Horne to cover North of England and Scotland.

Horne will cover fleet sales for Škoda UK in North Manchester, Carlisle and Northeast England, incorporating Newcastle, Middlesbrough and Durham, as well as the whole of Scotland.

Horne, 29, has five years' experience in the fleet arena and has been working in sales for over 12 years. Having previously worked for contract hire company Arval, he has an excellent understanding of the automotive industry. In addition to travelling in excess of 1,200 miles a week to meet and nurture client relationships, Horne' main day-to-day objective is to discuss the benefits of choosing Škoda models for fleet with prospective customers.

Commenting on his new appointment, Horne said: "I join Škoda at a very exciting time, following the launch of new Superb Estate and the launch of the Fabia vRS this summer. The product offering for fleet is exceptional and I am finding that public service authorities are particularly keen on the Octavia for their rapid response services - situations in which they need reliable and fuel efficient transportation.”

Rob English, national fleet sales manager, added: "With his enthusiasm, industry expertise and area knowledge, James is an ideal addition to the Škoda team. We wish him every success in his new role."
