Network Q appoints new head

Derek Wilson is to head-up Network Q and oversee Vauxhall's rental sales and company vehicle operations.

He moves to the UK from Hungary where he was Opel's chief financial officer for South East Europe, with responsibility for markets such as Croatia, Romania, Czech Republic and Ukraine. Prior to that, he served in several other senior commercial finance roles across GM Europe, including stints in Sweden and Switzerland.

He reports to James Taylor, Vauxhall's new fleet sales director.

"I'm very happy to be offered this fantastic opportunity," said Wilson. "Network Q has been providing peace of mind motoring to over two million customers for the last 20 years. I am looking forward to continuing the brand's relentless drive to deliver an industry leading offering for our customers, as demonstrated by groundbreaking initiatives like the Network Q Lifetime Warranty launched earlier this year."

Wilson succeeds Karl Howkins, who is now sales director at Opel Netherlands.
