TrustFord appoints fleet and commercial vehicle director

TrustFord has appointed Mark Wilkie as fleet and commercial vehicle director.

Wilkie brings with him a wealth of experience and knowledge of fleet and commercial vehicles, having worked in the automotive sector for over 20 years.

During this time, he spent nine years in senior operational roles and joined the TrustFord (formerly Polar Ford) team in August 2013 as general manager of its Huddersfield and Bradford dealerships.

Reporting directly into operations director, John Leeman, Mark will be responsible for overseeing TrustFord’s entire fleet and commercial vehicle operation, accouting for more than 40 per cent of the business’ new vehicle sales.

Wilkie said: “I am thrilled to be selected to head up the fleet and commercial vehicle division. As a result of our commitment to our customers, as well as a fantastic team of devoted salespeople, TrustFord has been a leader in best practice and innovation for many years; I’m looking forward to helping further develop this important area of the business.”

John Leeman added: "Since joining us in 2013 as a general manager, Mark has had a significant impact on our business, thanks to both his excellent leadership style and a dedicated approach to our core business principles. I have absolute confidence that Mark will be integral to the ongoing growth of this vital business division.”
