New structure at Audi as it aims to grow corporate sales
Moving from her previous role of fleet sales manager, Alison Davies adopts the new business development manager position, while Mark Hamilton joins Ruth Austin as the second key account manager.
‘The new structure will ensure we look after our larger fleet customers and work with the to develop long-term partnership, said Roger Grainger, national fleet sales manager at Audi.
‘Our new business development manager wills tart to build dialogue with fleets where we have little or no direct relationship.’
Meanwhile the team of six fleet sales managers will liaise directly with operators of between 25 and 100 vehicles and work with the local business development managers in the Audi Centre network. Each will operate over a new sales territory as follows:
• Scotland/North – Craig Larson
• North East – Tosh Crompton
• Midlands – Barbara O’Neill-Joyce
• East Anglia – Paul O’Brien
• South East and Northern Ireland – Neil Mumford
South East – Simon Lewis
‘In effect, the fleet sales managers will also adopt an element of business development in their roles,’ added Grainger.
‘Company car drivers local to each Audi Centre can expect to be treated like retail customers, with a full service tailored to their needs available from each centre-based local business development manager.’
