“Scottish” fleet management consultancy launched in Poland

A motoring finance expert from Scotland has launched a new fleet management consultancy in Poland.

Paul Gogolinski from Aberdeen. Scotland, has launched Total Fleet Solutions, drawing on his previous industry experience.

Hestarted his financial services career with Lloyds and Scottish  in 1980 and spent nearly 20 years with the captive finance arm of Mercedes-Benz in the UK, South Africa and Poland.

He has lived in Poland for the past 9 years having moved there as Managing Director of DaimlerChrysler  Fleet Management and later spent 2 years as MD of Business Lease Poland.

Gogolinski has been joined by Krzysztof Sosnowski who has 17 years experience in the Polish full service leasing market, as Operations Director at Alphabet Fleet Management and ING Car Lease.

Gogolinski said: "I have concluded that the Polish market lacks this level of quality fleet management and consultancy. This is the largest market in the region and stands on the brink of further growth due to Poland’s general economic stability being further underpinned by fresh EU funds to be spent in the coming years.

"The clients we have spoken to so far appreciate our authentic ‘close to customer’ approach and objectivity. This differentiates us in the market as clients I have spoken to so far, indicate that they are not currently receiving such best practice consultancy and advice. We are focused on helping clients improve fleet efficiency and reduce costs. There is always room for that."

    Looking at the captive fleet companies it makes clear that the business interest is prior to the customer interest, means there is no independant offer nor consultancy. therefore better choose an outside expert to do your fist evaluation :)
