Following the appointment of John Given as sales director in August 2011 to drive forward the company’s strategic business growth in the corporate fleet market, Pendragon Contracts is strengthening its sales team with three new appointments.
Gareth Carr and James Hopkinson have both been appointed business capture managers, covering new business in the North and South respectively. Beverley Oliver joins as customer relationship manager and will be developing existing customer relationships in the north of England.
All three new starters bring over 20 years’ automotive and fleet experience to Pendragon Contracts. Gareth Carr was previously at Lombard for six years working across contract hire and asset finance. Prior to this he was with RBS.
James Hopkinson has over 11 years’ experience working in sales management roles for Porsche and Mercedes franchises, which will provide a fresh approach to the fleet business.
Beverley Oliver was head of sales and customer service at Sixt Rentacar and previously head of account management at Inchcape’s contract hire business for four years.
Given says: “The combined experience and expertise demonstrated by our new team members will ensure that Pendragon Contracts remains on target to achieve our growth goals and will ensure all our customers are supported effectively by knowledgeable, business-focused executives with a proven track record.”
