ARI has appointed Nick Caller (pictured) as its UK managing director. Caller will be in charge of all operations in the UK and will play a pivotal part in its global market investment, says ARI.
The new MD brings 20-plus years of leadership experience to his new role.
He spent 12 years with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), where he oversaw more than 800 procurement professionals responsible for the purchase of all non-production goods and services, including fleet vehicles.
Bob White, president of ARI, said: “Nick possesses a wealth of leadership, change management, and technology expertise that will deliver value to our clients in the UK.
“I’m pleased to welcome him to the ARI organization and our executive leadership team.
“With Nick at the forefront of our robust leadership team, we’re excited for the future of our global business.
“We are steadfastly committed to the UK market, and will continue to invest in our customer experience, innovative technology, and disruptive fleet solutions that drive value to our clients.”
Before he worked with HPE, he had roles at Computer Sciences Corporation and Fujitsu, and achieved MCIPS status with the Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply.
He also obtained Six Sigma Executive accreditation, and earned a Higher National Certificate (HNC) in Business, Finance, and Economics.
Caller said: “I am excited to join an organisation that embraces ongoing investment in people, processes, and technology.
“I look forward to contributing toward the continued success of ARI through measurable achievements and attracting top talent by nurturing our unique workplace culture.”
Caller will work alongside his predecessor Keith Allen until the end of the year. He will then relinquish his role, but continue until the end of 2021 in an advisory role with ARI.
Allen was responsible for helping to change the business and its culture, business model, management team and systems.
