Zenith is expanding its commercial vehicle team to cater for increasing demand for its commercial vehicle management services.
Ryan Long has joined Zenith from Lombard Vehicle Management where he headed its LCV team, as LCV general sales manager.
Long will be developing Zenith’s commercial vehicle proposition and supply chain and will be working with all key business areas to further evolve the offering. Zenith has also recently launched a HGV alliance with HGV fleet management specialists Contract Vehicles Limited (CVL).
Tim Buchan, Zenith chief executive, said: "Growing our commercial vehicle fleet and continuously improving our offering is an important part of our strategy.
"Many of our customers have extensive commercial vehicle fleets and Ryan’s appointment will help strengthen and develop this area. Ryan will be working with all the key business areas – from system and risk management, through purchasing, maintenance, downtime management and vehicle disposals and we are delighted to welcome him to our team.
"In particular, Ryan has the brief to create a Zenith commercial vehicle hub, which will provide the ability for our customers to have their vehicles built to their requirements through a number of converter operations."
Long added: "I am excited to have joined Zenith because of its ambitious growth strategy, its commitment to delivering high levels of customer service and its excellent operating and reporting systems, used both by customers and internally. I am looking forward to using my knowledge and experience to help further develop Zenith’s commercial vehicle proposition."
