Moyosola Fujamade has joined Kia’s fleet team as its new national contract hire relationship manager.
She replaces Phil Glover who has moved to the role of RV and fleet operations manager.
Fujamade will manage the relationship with Kia’s own brand contract hire supplier and day-to-day business relationships with contract hire companies.
She previously worked in Kia’s press team, where she has held a number of roles since 2015, most recently as senior press officer focussed on events.
Prior to this, she worked in Kia’s product planning team in 2014 after completing her degree in mathematics for finance and management at the University of Portsmouth.
John Hargreaves, head of fleet and remarketing at Kia UK, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Moyo to the team at a pivotal time for Kia and following the successful launch of several key fleet models.
“Moyo’s personality, skills and background will certainly be put to good use enhancing and developing our contract hire business relationships.”
Fujamade added: “During my time on the front-line of Kia’s new model launches over the past six years, it has become ever-more clear that fleets are going electric, as is Kia with its ‘Plan S’ strategy now in full swing.
“With this industry-wide change as the backdrop, it’s a fascinating time to join the fleet sales team and I’m really excited for what the future holds and getting stuck into working with the UK’s top contract hire firms.”
She will report to Gary Curran, national leasing and rental manager at Kia UK, who himself changed to this role at the start of the year following three years at Kia as RV and fleet operations manager.
