The role is newly-created and will focus on delivering efficient and scalable services to existing and new VGL customers, whilst ensuring the fleet operations team maintains the high levels of industry knowledge and expertise.
Graham Wheeler, managing director of Volkswagen Financial Services and Volkswagen Group Leasing, said; “Having Martin’s operational expertise is a major step forward for Volkswagen Group Leasing.
