Fleet Evolution expands team after major upsurge in EV enquiries
EV leasing and salary sacrifice provider Fleet Evolution has appointed five new team members to handle a surge in new business.
The West Midlands-based business has reported a huge increase in interest in its salary sacrifice offering, in particular due to the current 1% Benefit-in-Kind tax rating for zero-emission vehicles.
Its new recruits join both the salary sacrifice and fleet management teams in response to surging demand for both services.
On the salary sacrifice side, Jordan Walker joins the Operations team to help manage insurance solutions for Fleet Evolution salary sacrifice customers, while Katie Whitfield has been appointed as engagement specialist to help deal with a huge upsurge in salary sacrifice car enquiries.
At the same time, Natasha Jones has been appointed order administrator to help cope with an upsurge in orders of electric cars, and Caitlin Rees joins as operations executive as part of the team looking after customer vehicles.
Kadi Douglas, meanwhile, has been recruited to the newly launched Mercia Fleet Management division, having completed qualifications in business and business management.
And Emily Ballinger has been promoted to the position of office manager in line with a growing number of office-based colleagues as more employees transition to more flexible working patterns, including home and office-based working as a result of the pandemic.
“We have seen a tremendous upsurge in new electric vehicle enquiries, particularly through our salary sacrifice schemes, which has meant taking on more staff to cope with demand,” said Fleet Evolution managing director, Andrew Leech.
“Our approach, at a time when recruitment is proving a major issue for many businesses, is to not necessarily look for experienced people from the industry, but grow and develop new starters and provide them with the requisite training to equip them for today’s vibrant salary sacrifice and fleet management markets,” he said.
