Nissan Motor (GB) has appointed three experienced managers to its new-look fleet management team.
Ian Miller joins the Nissan fleet team as head of fleet planning and operations, and brings with him a wealth of experience having worked for many years within fleet and leasing — most recently as regional sales director at LeasePlan.
Marco Capozzoli has been appointed as Nissan’s new head of national dealer fleet, having spent nine years working for Volkswagen Group as a national public sector manager and regional corporate sales manager within the leasing company. Prior to this, he worked for Daimler fleet.
Finally, Peter Johnson, with more than 20 years’ experience in the automotive industry, joins Nissan as its new head of fleet leasing and specialist sales. His previous roles, covering the UK and internationally, include working with Kwik-Fit Euro, Unipart International and Volvo Car Group in various senior sales, aftersales, finance, fleet and marketing roles.
All three will be based at Nissan Motor (GB)’s Maple Cross headquarters, under fleet director Iker Lazzari, who has restructured the fleet management team to reflect the brand’s ambitions for 2018.
Nissan’s fleet restructure has also seen a restructure of the senior management team. They join client service manager Dan Thomas, head of fleet marketing Amy Harms, head of corporate fleet Adam Connelly and head of rental Kevin Childs.
Lazzari said: “I am delighted to welcome Ian, Marco and Peter to our refreshed management team at this crucial time in the development of the new ‘We Mean Business’ Fleet Strategy.
“They are going to play a key role in driving our ambitions to become the top Asian brand in UK fleet and their experience is going to help us drive performance and best practice throughout our operations, from head office down to our network of Fleet Business Centres.”
