New MD joins Kwik-Fit Fleet
Peter Lambert has accepted the role, effective from today 2 August, reporting directly to Kwik-Fit Group chief executive Ian Fraser.
Mr Lambert has held a wide number of roles in the motor industry, spanning 25 years and including positions at Ford, Toyota and DaimlerChrysler. He is probably best known for his former role of managing director as Chrysler UK but was also previously sales and marketing director for Mercedes-Benz Vans.
More recently he was managing director for Rossetts Commercials, the Mercedes-Benz Commercial vehicle dealer for Sussex and Surrey.
In his new role, he will focus on building on Kwik-Fit Fleet’s traditional tyre business through further expanding its Service, MOT and Repair sales, in line with the strategy that has been successfully rolled out within its retail operation.
Commenting on the new appointment, Ian Fraser said: 'We are delighted to welcome Peter to the group. His breadth of experience across so many different aspects of the industry makes him an ideal candidate to take over responsibility for our Fleet business. I welcome the insight and the leadership qualities that he will bring to the team.
'I would also like to thank Mike Wise for his significant contribution to the growth of Kwik-Fit Fleet and wish him well in his future career.'
Peter Lambert added: 'I am delighted to be joining Kwik-Fit Fleet at this exciting time in the company’s development. With a widely recognised brand, unrivalled network coverage and now with the expertise to offer MOT and Service, Kwik-Fit is better placed than ever to offer value for money and convenience to the fleet customer. The work already undertaken by the existing team to promote the expanded range of quality services has already laid a solid foundation for the continuing success of Kwik-Fit Fleet.'
