Campaign manager, Jonathan Pearce has been promoted to Marketing manager, and former head of Fleet Management, Colin Wilson, is now Commercial manager Non Rental in Gateshead.
Steve Granger has also been appointed as head of Accident Management for Northgate Vehicle Hire and Fleet Technique. His appointment follows six and a half years with BT Fleet as Operations manager and 16.5 years with AXA Insurance were he held various assessing and management positions within the claims motor engineering team. Steve’s role at Northgate will see him head up the operational management of the company’s team of in-house engineers, accident repair control, and recharge administrators. He will also be responsible for the operational performance of the network of external accident repairers.
It’s not only Northgate Vehicle Hire that’s started the New Year on a positive note, but Van Monster, which is part of Northgate PLC, too. Former Sales Executive, Mark Hughes, has been promoted to General Sales manager, seeing the foursome rewarded for their hard work over the last few years.
Jonathan Pearce, Marketing manager at Northgate Vehicle Hire, said: 'The last 18 months have been an incredibly busy time for Northgate – with the rebrand and admin centralisation – but it’s great to welcome a new face to the team and see the existing team’s hard work recognised. I know everyone is united in their bid to get stuck into maximising the impact Northgate has on the fleet industry. We have a lot planned over the next 12 months to ensure we stay ahead of the game and maintain our strong position in flexible vehicle hire.'
