Alphabet focuses on outsourced management with new appointment
Gallop joins the company from Fleet Logistics, where he was operations director for the last five years. He also held the same title at Hitachi Capital Vehicle Solutions and was previously client services director at Arval.
He said: 'The opportunity to join Alphabet, as it emerges as a leading UK and European leasing and fleet management provider, was not one to miss. Customers increasingly want to outsource non-core areas like fleet, and my role here will include developing our existing fleet and driver management services in line with the needs of the market.'
Gallop’s appointment follows last month’s announcement of a new senior management team structure for Alphabet, which is now operationally independent in the UK while remaining part of BMW Group Financial Services. The firm has also rolled out a series of new operational management roles in the UK over the past nine months, including Nigel Trotman, head of strategic consulting; Russell Cain, accident management & insurance manager and Jane White, implementation manager.
Further key new appointments are expected by Alphabet in the next few weeks.
