New management team announced at Alphabet

Richard Schooling, chief executive of Alphabet (GB), has announced details of the company’s new senior management team.

All four roles, including Schooling’s position as CEO, are new. They aim to reflect Alphabet’s move to operational independence in the UK, although the business remains part of BMW Group Financial Services.

Schooling said: “This is the most significant development for Alphabet since we launched the business in 1997. It brings fresh impetus and innovation to the leasing and fleet management sector.

“The new structure gives Alphabet the right platform on which to build the next phase of its growth through continued investment in our people and systems. In addition to further enhancing the value we offer customers as we continue to develop our broad portfolio of fleet products and services, we also have exciting plans for new products designed to meet the emerging travel-related needs of national and international companies.”

“We have never lost sight of our determination to continually raise the benchmark for high standards of customer satisfaction. Delivering on our promises has brought Alphabet into the top 10 in UK leasing and top six in Europe.”

The new leadership team at Alphabet (GB) is headed up by Schooling and includes: Albert Vissers, chief financial officer; Paul Hollick, sales and marketing director; and Matt Sutherland, chief operating officer.

Other recent moves and appointments at Alphabet (GB) have included Nigel Trotman, appointed head of strategic consulting and Russell Cain, who joined Alphabet from FMG in the new role of accident management and insurance manager.
