Newport Pagnell-based fleet management specialist CLM has appointed Andy Short as its commercial director, responsible for the company’s client services activities as well as managing supplier relationships with leasing companies and vehicle manufacturers.
Short, 47, has more than 20 years’ experience in the UK fleet and automotive sectors and will head up a 13-strong client services team.
CLM, which has more than 14,000 vehicles under management, has been part of the Maxxia Group since 2013, and Short said he felt that being within the larger Group brought additional benefits for CLM’s fleet customers.
He explained: “We are able to provide a wider range of innovative fleet solutions as a result, especially around vehicle finance where there is a broader set of options and funding sources available.
“In my new role, I shall be looking after all business development activities for existing customers and one of my initial priorities is to explore wider fleet service possibilities with existing customers in order to deliver greater value to them.”
CLM Fleet Management managing director John Kelly said: “We are delighted to welcome Andy to the senior management team at CLM and expect his wealth of experience will help us further grow and develop the business.”
