Nissan Fleet restructure leads to three new roles
Nissan Motor has created three new roles within its fleet management team as it reworks its fleet proposition.
Last year saw recently appointed fleet director Iker Lazzarri announce plans for the brand to work on making itself simpler for businesses of all sizes to engage with its range of cars and vans under its new ‘We Mean Business’ strategy, and offer a broad proposition for fleets, covering both vehicles and suitable funding.
Following a restructure of the fleet team, the carmaker has now appointed new recruits including Ian Miller, who joins as head of fleet planning and operations, building on many years’ experience within the fleet and leasing sector — most recently as regional sales director at LeasePlan.
Meanwhile, Marco Capozzoli is Nissan’s new head of national dealer fleet, having spent nine years working for Volkswagen Group as a national public sector manager and regional corporate sales manager within the leasing company. Prior to this, he worked for Daimler Fleet.
Finally, Peter Johnson joins Nissan as head of fleet leasing and specialist sales. His previous roles, covering the UK and internationally, include working with Kwik-Fit Euro, Unipart International and Volvo Car Group in various senior sales, aftersales, finance, fleet and marketing roles.
Lazzari said of the new recruits: “They are going to play a key role in driving our ambitions to become the top Asian brand in UK fleet and their experience is going to help us drive performance and best practice throughout our operations, from head office down to our network of Fleet Business Centres.”
