DriveTech, part of the AA, invests in five new business development appointments to drive growth in key sectors
With a growing demand for its fleet and driver risk management solutions, DriveTech is announcing a number of recent appointments to drive growth in its Corporate Fleet business.
The appointments will further strengthen DriveTech’s ability to support its fleet customers in ensuring Health & Safety and legal compliance, as well as safer drivers, lower emissions (and therefore higher air quality) and driving down running costs.

His focus is centred around ensuring the delivery of value for customers, driving innovation and building strong long-term relationships. Having led sales and operational teams within world class and global service organisations, such as LeasePlan and RAC, Simon brings a customer-centric approach to DriveTech’s fleet risk management and driver education services.
