Matt Dyer has been named as the BVRLA’s new chairman, replacing Simon Oliphant who has stepped down to vice-chairman following a two-year term.
Dyer has been with LeasePlan for more than 20 years, holding roles with LeasePlan Corporation and LeasePlan International. He joined the BVRLA’s Committee of Management in August 2014, and was appointed to the position of vice-chairman in May 2016.
“As the new Chairman of the BVRLA, it is an honour to be in a position to drive positive change within the industry I have been associated with for more than 20 years,” Dyer said.
“My first priority is to ensure we continue the excellent work that has been overseen by Simon, Gerry and the BVRLA’s committee members. The association has really grown in its presence in recent years, developing stronger relationships with government, enhancing its authoritative voice and growing its diverse membership.”
As BVRLA Chairman, Dyer is responsible for leading the BVRLA Committee of Management – essentially its board of directors – which gained one more appointee today. Ian Tillbrook, fleet director at VW Financial Services, is now Chair of the BVRLA’s Leasing & Fleet Management Committee.
Elsewhere in the BVRLA, Spencer Blake of Wessex Fleet has replaced Fleetdrive’s Mike Potter as chair of the association’s Leasing Broker Committee.
