Multifleet has appointed Chris Harris as its new national sales manager.

As the company increases its focus on business contract hire, as well as continuing to grow its fleet management business (Run Your Fleet), this appointment is key to meet its ambitious growth aspirations.

“We knew we needed the very best individual for this newly created position,” said Steve Whitmarsh, managing director, Multifleet Vehicle Management

“When we met Chris he impressed with his understanding of not just the fleet industry, but our needs and the focus we needed to be able to meet and succeed our ambitions for growth.”

“My career spans over 20 years in the motor industry which started at British Car Contracts (Lombard VM). I have been fortunate enough to gain experience in most areas of the industry including leasing, manufacturing, dealer group and most recently daily rental. This has allowed me to get a great insight to how the industry works and has led to a real understanding of what services are fit for purpose for end user customers,” said Chris Harris.

“Multifleet Vehicle Management has a real passion and focus to partner with its customers and to offer the products that not just meet their needs but also offer real sound advice. I am focused on service and partnering with customers and I am delighted to be working with the team and offering class leading service to our customers.”

“This is a key time for us and we needed the right person in place who understood not only the company’s vision but also had a complete understanding of the fleet industry as a whole. We are delighted that Chris has joined us and we are all looking forward to working with him as we move forward and expand into further areas of the fleet services sector,” added Whitmarsh.
