Matt Dyer named new BVRLA chairman
Dyer takes over from Hitachi Capital Corporation’s Simon Oliphant, who has stepped down to the position of vice-chairman after completing a two-year term, and brings over 20 years’ experience with LeasePlan including roles with LeasePlan Corporation and LeasePlan International. He joined the BVRLA’s Committee of Management in August 2014, and was appointed to the position of vice-chairman in May 2016.
Dyer has already identified some key aims in his new position. “I am looking forward to helping the association and our members navigate the dynamic mobility landscape we work within. We will be at the heart of the discussion on the big issues of the day – and whatever’s on the horizon; from the challenges surrounding air quality and emissions, to the opportunities surrounding connected data. Informing our members and helping them to understand the positive impact the sector can have underpins everything we do.”
As BVRLA chairman, Dyer is responsible for leading the BVRLA Committee of Management, which has gained one more appointee. Ian Tillbrook, fleet director at VW Financial Services, is now chair of the BVRLA’s Leasing & Fleet Management Committee.
Elsewhere in the BVRLA, Spencer Blake of Wessex Fleet has replaced Fleetdrive’s Mike Potter as chair of the association’s Leasing Broker Committee.
