LeasePlan UK has appointed Chris Black as commercial director and Steve Jones as director for future fleet solutions, with immediate effect.
Black joined LeasePlan in 2017 as new business sales director, and expanded the new business team for corporate and international business.
His focus will be on enhancing the commercial division, growing profitability and LeasePlan’s product offering.
LeasePlan UK’s managing director Matt Dyer said: “Chris has impressed since he joined the business last year, and having already seen the benefits of his work, we are excited to promote him into a role that will strengthen our Commercial Division.”
Jones will be transitioning from his current role as head of risk with an initial focus on developing and improving the current flexible solutions on offer such as LeasePlan Flexible.
He will also continue to lead LeasePlan’s response to changing consumer requirements in the area of engines and fuel type during the transition to lower emission vehicles.
Dyer said: “In addition, Steve’s appointment further emphasises our awareness of the emerging opportunities in the market. His role will be innovation-led in the early stages to ensure we continue the progress we have made to date.
“Both Chris and Steve are big assets for our business and will provide an important voice on the managing board. It is great to see two new internal promotions which enable us to continue and advance the strong position we are in as a business in these areas.”
