Reporting directly to Sales Director, Darren Payne, who moved across from the same role at Renault UK in May, former EV Category Manager, Robert Tweedie, becomes Fleet Sales Director.

He replaces Mark Wheeler, who moves to the newly created position of Director of LCV and Customer Relationships, ahead of the NV300 launch later this year.

A further eight fleet sales professionals have also been recruited to form a mid-sized fleet team, for businesses with 50-200 vehicles. The team is led by Adam Connelly, formerly Contract Hire Manager at SEAT.

Nissan registered 74,768 passenger cars and 10,398 vans to business users in 2015, reaching an all-time high market share of 5.68%.

Payne commented: “Nissan’s presence in the fleet sector has grown significantly in recent years and we intend to remain on this upward trajectory.

“The key appointments we have made will ensure we have the right people in place to achieve all of our reputational targets and growth aspirations moving forward.

“Meanwhile, the changes we have implemented will make us much more flexible as an organisation and better able to respond to the changing needs of our fleet customers.”
