Argall joined Tusker eight years ago from Alcester, an importer of glassware and china in the hospitality industry, where she was national sales manager.@PREVIEWEND@ In her new role, she will be responsible for growing the business development team, including mentoring, training and developing the existing business development managers, recruiting others, as well as developing her own sales function, and will join the senior management team at Tusker.

Veronica Steele, meanwhile, has taken on the role of Account Development director, overseeing a team of account development and implementation managers and working closely with Tusker clients across all products within the portfolio.
Steele, who also joined Tusker eight years previously, said: 'We have a fantastic team of people here at Tusker who are really knowledgeable in the key areas of strategically managing the clients’ needs, such as legislation, taxation, salary sacrifice and duty of care and are extremely proficient in all areas of fleet operation.
'My new role is to develop the team even further to ensure we continue to deliver the gold standard, first rate customer service we have always built Tusker on. We place great emphasis on customer service and client relationships here at Tusker and will continue to do so to ensure our future success.
