City Auction Group establishes bespoke fleet management department
The new department will support the firm’s operations in Rockingham and Belfast and will be headed up Lynne Girvan, fleet management department manager. Girvan joined the firm in 2010 and was formerly fleet sales manager at the firm.
Her new responsibilities will be managing processes, procedures and payments to ensure that City Auction Group provides a consistent, highly professional service. She will be supported by two new fleet management assistants, Christina Maxwell and Rachel Watson. All City Auction Group corporate fleet accounts will be handled by this new team, based at the firm’s Head Office.
Michael Tomalin, managing director of City Auction Group, commented: “The introduction of our new Fleet Management Department will cement out commitment to this vital sector and enable us to grow and develop our portfolio of corporate vendors. It will also ensure we provide a first class service to our clients, with a dedicated team of account handlers.
“We have experienced a sharp increase in the number of corporate vendors working with us and since we opened Rockingham in January 2015, we have increased our portfolio by 20%.
“We believe this significant growth is down to the high quality of service that we offer; our world-class auction facilities; and the level of commitment by our team across the group. We are in a unique position at Rockingham, with the sheer size of the facility at an operational motor racing track. It adds something very special to the central location.
The next auction event is on Thursday 14 May 2015 at 10am with anchor vendor Lex Autolease, Avis Budget Group, Peugeot & Citroen Financial Services, Semalease, Helphire, RCi Financial Services, Renault UK, Pendragon Vehicle Management, Fleet Assist, FCA Fleet Services and Fleet Financial.
