Three new area managers have been hired by Activa Contracts as the company gears up for expansion in 2020.

Joining the company are: Kay Piggott, area manager for the North East of England; Penny Muchamore, covering Milton Keynes, Northampton and Oxford; and James Davis, responsible for the West Midlands and North Wales.

The Milton Keynes-based division of the Arnold Clark Group now has 12 area managers and looks set to make one more appointment in the near future.

Activa Contracts national sales manager Sally Lewis, said: “As a company we need to focus on winning new business and growing the fleet and the new recruits will help us meet our ambitious objectives for the new decade.

“Our area managers are responsible for securing their own business opportunities in addition to managing accounts.

“They are closely supported by Activa Contracts’ business development and customer service teams to deliver the high level of service for which the company is renowned and ensure client relationships are long-standing.”

All new appointments will report to Lewis.

Piggott brings over 25 years of senior customer service experience to the company, whilst Muchamore offers a decade of automotive industry experience and Davis has been involved with both car and commercial vehicle distribution.

It was established in 2000 from within the Scotland-based Arnold Clark leasing business to build a stronger presence in England and Wales.

The company offers a range of fleet funding solutions and a full range of fleet management services.

Activa Contracts was named ‘Leasing Company of the Year - up to 20,000 Vehicles’ at the 2017 Fleet News Awards.

Last year, Activa Contracts secured a fleet partnership with Premier League team Wolverhampton Wanderers (Wolves).
