AA DriveTech appoints new divisional head
Paul Holmes, formerly head of AA Risk Management Solutions, becomes director of the FleetSafe division of AA DriveTech, which is now responsible for all fleet-related training and driver risk management activities at the AA.
Mr Holmes holds responsibility for leading the existing AA DriveTech fleet specialists and says that his team will remain focused on delivering customer service as a priority.
He said: 'Despite the fact that the AA is one of the biggest and most well-respected names in the motoring sector we will continue to provide personal service, attention to detail, unrivalled quality, and effective products that yield quantifiable savings.'
Commenting on the appointment, AA DriveTech managing director Jim Kirkwood said: 'With the absorption of AA Risk Management Solutions into AA DriveTech we have now created the most powerful force in the field of occupational driver risk management. With over 300 customers between us we knew we had to strengthen the management team and Paul's mix of experience, market knowledge and track record of successful account management made him the ideal choice.'
Mr Holmes' appointment comes as the company looks to streamline its product and services line-up.
'Before the AA and DriveTech came together we had different, but often complementary, product offerings,' said Mr Holmes. 'We will not only be amalgamating and refining those but, thanks to the AA's vast resources, be developing new ones which will give our customers unrivalled choice in meeting their needs. Although “one stop shop” is a very over-used phrase these days it really does apply in our case.'
