Synergy Car Leasing has appointed David Brockwell as its first chief financial officer, with a brief to boost and support the next phase of the company’s growth strategy.
Brockwell was the CFO and chief operating officer at Tuskerdirect for 12 years and group finance director at ION Trading Systems for five years. He has most recently worked as a senior consultant within the fleet industry.
Synergy Car Leasing, which provides business and personal vehicle leasing and fleet management services across the UK, said Brockwell’s “extensive experience” of leading teams to maximise growth potential is the perfect fit for its business, which joined the Newable family of companies in early 2020.
Brockwell said: “The business is well placed in this dynamic market, with a solid offering and a good growth plan. I see my experience as a great fit and look forward to building on Synergy’s success to date.”
The leasing firm was founded in 2006 by Paul Parkinson and now employs more than 50 people at its Harrogate site. It was recognised as the fastest-growing leasing broker in its class by the Leasing Broker Federation and has an established online service offering safe and free contactless UK mainland delivery.
Parkinson added: “Synergy has enjoyed an incredibly exciting growth journey in recent years and it’s fantastic to welcome David to our senior team as we enter the next phase of our growth. He’s a highly respected CFO and finance professional with a wealth of experience and knowledge in our sector.
“We operate in a fast-paced, competitive and highly regulated marketplace and I’m confident David will hit the ground running to achieve great things for the future of our business.”
