Chevin expands team to target global growth

Several new team members have been recruited by Chevin to support its local and global operations.

In the UK, four new members of staff have joined Chevin across a number of departments:

  • David Hemsley, business development manager will focus on supplying fleet management software to meet the needs of public sector fleets (one of Chevin’s main client bases).
  • Gary McNamee, internal sales and account manager will be responsible for managing client accounts as well as identifying new business development opportunities.
  • Ross Jephson, SEO specialist will be responsible for managing the performance of Chevin’s recently re-launched website, to ensure that information can always be found by organisations interested in fleet management software and the latest learning materials.
  • Sara Baker, assistant accountant will be focused on ensuring smooth transactions for Chevin’s global operations.

Also joining the team is Majed Al-Fityani as senior consultant, who becomes the first full-time employee to be recruited in Chevin’s Middle East department. Based in Jordan, he will be responsible for helping develop business throughout the Middle East market.

Furthermore, Chevin has this month finalised recruitment of a number of new team members in its Australia and North America offices.

Ashley Sowerby, Chevin’s managing director, explained: “We have seen steadily-increasing revenue over recent years, with fleet and asset managers increasingly recognising the value of our products as effective asset management tools.

“In line with this growth, we are in a strong position to continue our expansion with the recruitment of several new staff members globally to help drive business further and support our customers.”

Chevin’s revenue increased 57% year-on-year in 2016 – a figure that represents the largest increase in the company’s 27-year history. Other highlights of 2016 included the opening of a new office in France, expansion into the Middle East, and the recruitment of 27 employees around the world.

Sowerby said: “We have three specific goals for our global strategy: To maximise revenue growth; to streamline and improve product delivery; and to invest in future growth.

“The new team members announced today to fill these roles are experienced and dedicated. They will be valued members of a professional but approachable team that helps drive Chevin’s business forward: I am delighted to welcome them all on board.”
