JCT600 VLS drives new platform under latest appointment

JCT600 Vehicle Leasing Solutions has appointed its first-ever project improvement manager as it rolls out its new Origo online platform.

L-R: Martyn Smith, Catherine Vaughan, Nicholas Keefe, Claire Day

Nicholas Keefe has been appointed to the role and arrives from FMG where he held a number of business change and improvement roles.

His new position has already seen him start on delivering the firm’s ongoing Business Improvement Plan, and taking the lead on its new platform, Origo. Taking its name from the Latin for source or origin, the platform has been designed to source the most cost-efficient funding solution for a business and their employees.

Phase 1 of the platform provides company car drivers with the choice of company vehicles or a structured PCH offering and has already seen the first customers sign up, who commented: “The platform provides our employees the tools to make an informed decision when they are choosing their next vehicle from multiple and new funding options.”

JCT600 VLS has also announced promotions for three employees. Catherine Vaughan steps up in the newly created purchasing manager position while Martyn Smith, who has 20 years’ experience at JCT600 VLS, takes up his new enhanced role as business support manager, working closely with Nicholas Keefe in driving forward the change within the business. In addition, Claire Day has recently taken up a new challenge with the Business Support Team in the new role of business support analyst, building on 18 years in Accounts.

“As the market continues to evolve we have been actively recruiting and promoting talented colleagues to meet the demands of our customers and our future strategy,” said Ben Creswick managing director of JCT600 VLS. “Our pure focus is to deliver market leading products, unrivalled service standards and strengthening our team’s existing level of experience and vast knowledge of the leasing industry, which will ensure that we continue to exceed our customers’ expectations. We are pleased to welcome Nicholas and congratulate Catherine, Martyn and Claire in their new roles.”
