Renault makes key appointments to fleet department

Group Renault UK has made four managerial appointments to its fleet team, as part of its plans to 'significantly grow' sales by 2017.

Simon Hubbard, Mark Waite and Simon Williams have been appointed business development area managers while Chris Bunce has been made business sales area manager.

The three new business development area managers will work with businesses that have more than 100 vehicles, with Hubbard responsible for the Midlands, East Anglia, South Wales and Cornwall, Waite covering the South of England, South East and East Midlands, and Williams responsible for the North of England and Scotland.

Their appointments follow a department restructure which has brought the fleet operations, residual value management and used vehicles teams together under Mark Dickens, as the head of fleet operations and remarketing, in order to offer fleet customers “an all-encompassing, more streamlined service”, according to Renault.

The demonstrator fleet has also been increased by 57% and Business Hub support call centre personnel have been increased by 30%. A new telephone voice coaching system has also been introduced throughout the brand’s Pro+ fleet dealerships.

Darren Payne, sales director at Group Renault UK said: “These appointments and growth in our sales department come at a very exciting time for the rapidly growing Group Renault UK and for our customers, our fleet offering being stronger than ever with the first full-year of sales of the All-New Kadjar, the forthcoming All-New Mégane and, later in 2016, an all-new version of Scénic too.

“Our team prides itself on its expertise and our new members have all been recruited for their substantial experience, passion for the brand and understanding of businesses’ fleet requirements. With the right people, a superb product line-up, a much enlarged demonstrator fleet and even greater support facilities, we look forward to providing fleet customers with an unprecedented Renault experience.”
