CLM announces new managing director
John Lawrence has joined CLM Fleet Management as its new managing director.
Lawrence has over 23 years’ experience in the automotive industry within the daily rental, vehicle manufacturing, fleet services and technology sectors. Previous roles include managing director of the Trackstar stolen vehicle recover solution at Teletrac Navman and director of service delivery at the RAC.
His new role will help spearhead plans for CLM’s ongoing development, including possible plans for expansion.
Lawrence said: “We currently have about 15,000 vehicles under management but I see no reason why we cannot take that volume forward significantly over the next couple of years.”
Other developments will see CLM become a more technologically focused business, including through an expanded range of fleet-related services.
“Our objective will be to continue to delight our existing customers, who will continue to be at the heart of everything we do, but also to widen our appeal to fresh customers who do not necessarily appreciate the full benefits of outsourcing their fleets to us,” he added.
Lawrence said that amongst the areas of focus would be managing logistics for customers, the SME market and enhanced support for driver services.
“Though our customer base is made up of fleets with anything from 100-2,000 vehicles, we want to see our products and services become more easily and readily accessible, especially in the SME space where it should be possible for smaller companies to access fleet management products at the push of a button.
“We also want to enhance our support for drivers and make everything easier and simpler for them, too,” he added.For more of the latest industry news, click here.
