Kia appoints new fleet boss

Kia has announced the appointment of John Hargreaves as head of fleet and remarketing.

He has been handed the major task of building Kia's future fleet business to new levels as the company aims for a long term annual sales volume in excess of 100,000 units a year.

Hargreaves, 48, joins Kia from Motability Operations where he was manufacturer account manager, but brings with him extensive experience from a variety of roles with Citroen - latterly as national fleet sales manager between 2005 and 2009.

He will take up his new role at Kia from February 8 and will be responsible for developing the strategy, processes and systems behind the company's UK fleet sales ambitions and used car operations, including the Approved Used scheme.
