Paul Russell has been appointed as General Manager of AMT Specialist Cars.
Russell joins to spearhead the division’s strategy for growth. Previously with Avis Rent a Car UK & Nexus Vehicle Management, he brings a wealth of industry knowledge to lead the development of this sector of the Group.
Russell said: “This is a very exciting time to join this dynamic Group of companies and I see the Specialist Car division as being a fundamental contributor to the overall growth.
