Leasedrive celebrates 10-year anniversary
David Bird, managing director at the Leasedrive Group, said: ‘Commercial director Roddy Graham and I bought into this business exactly ten years ago with the specific intention of building a portfolio of industry leading blue chip customers, significantly investing in all areas of the company and launching an integrated range of product and service innovations.
‘At the time, we stated that we wanted to rewrite the rules of fleet management and believed that we would set new benchmark standards for operational and customer service quality in the industry.
‘A year later, we launched Drive:Manager, a new totally integrated online fleet management system and were able to offer customers the very best leading-edge quality business solutions in the fleet industry. And so the award-winning Drive:Manager, subject of on-going investment and development, has proved.
‘Other major milestones in the intervening years have been the acquisition of Velo in 2007 and the acquisition of the Masterlease UK leasing business in late 2010.
‘During the past 10 years, we have developed a proven track record of buying out, growing and improving the performance of the group and we enjoy the loyal support of one of the most experienced management teams in the industry and exceptional, hard-working staff committed to service excellence.
‘Our constant focus is to deliver the highest-quality, bespoke vehicle management service and demonstrably provide savings and efficiencies to our clients through investment in people, world-class fleet management systems and totally-integrated innovative solutions.
‘We continue to drive our dynamic company forward and our vision is to become the UK's leading provider of premium fleet services – not just be the best fleet provider but the best by far.’
