FCA appoints new contract hire and leasing managers

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles UK has appointed Robert English to the role of national corporate and leasing manager and Mike Miles to the role of contract hire and leasing manager (South).

Reporting to fleet and business sales director Francis Bleasdale, English takes over responsibility for the national corporate and leasing team, helping to grow sales and looking at ways to further improve the corporate customer experience.

The role also involves managing the relationships with the wider corporate market ensuring that the FCA group’s model proposition is correctly positioned within each of the competitive sectors. He comes to the post having previously worked at Volkswagen Group, Honda UK and, most recently, as an account director for Return On Investment.

Miles will be responsible for contract hire and leasing, based in the south of the UK. His core responsibilities will be to manage and develop business and relationships with the major leasing providers, ensuring FCA products are represented and positioned accurately. He was previously new business fleet development manager for Vauxhall.

"I welcome Robert and Mike to these new roles within the Fleet Department," said Bleasdale.

"They have wide experience gained working previously with well-known car manufacturers, and their knowledge and experience of the fleet market will help FCA UK to continue moving forward in this area now, and into 2017."
