IMS to boost fleet vehicle security services under new hire
The Mobility division of IMS (Insurance & Mobility Solutions) has appointed Sharyn Morley as head of vehicle security services, leading its work on security-based service delivery to fleets and mobility businesses across Europe.
Morley, who starts her new role on 11 January, has spent two decades in a variety of roles at Europcar Mobility Group.
In her new role, she will report to Dave Turnock, sales director for the division, who said: “Sharyn is well respected across the industry and will be an excellent ambassador for us among police forces, fleet and mobility businesses and other stakeholder groups. We also expect her to build links with government agencies looking at terrorism and organised crime gangs, both of which utilise the car rental sector for their criminal activity.”
Turnock explained: “One of her key tasks will be to build a risk intelligence register which can be embedded into our client-facing systems, including identifying roads with high incidence of vehicle theft and common locations for staged accidents and fraudulent claims. We will capture this data and use it to assist our clients with their total risk management approach.”
Morley said: “This is a great opportunity for me to bring the IMS security product set to the attention of many new forums, organisations and channels, where IMS hasn’t yet engaged fully, and where there would be great benefit derived from the adoption of its technologies and approach.”
She added: “There were 113,000 vehicles thefts in the UK last year, and professional criminals who steal cars to order use highly sophisticated technology. A combination of the technology, services and industry experience within IMS will help keep clients one step ahead of professional criminals, across the UK and Europe.”
