Ogilvie Fleet targets expansion with new appointment
Hill brings close to 25 years of contract hire and leasing industry experience to Ogilvie Fleet and has joined from Lookers Leasing, where he held a similar role for almost 10 years. Prior to that, Mr Hill spent 14 years at Appleyard Vehicle Contracts.
Based out of Ogilvie Fleet’s Sheffield office, Hill will be responsible for securing new contracts and providing a wide range of best practice advice and information to existing clients based around the use of the company’s wide-range of fleet management solutions.
His appointment follows the early 2015 recruitment of David Raponi to lead Ogilvie Fleet’s growth into the larger corporate sector and the privately-owned business anticipates beefing up its sales team still further in the near future.
Ogilvie Fleet has more than 11,500 vehicles on its books and Ashley Crookes, national sales manager, said: ‘We are focusing on securing new business as the economy continues to recover and an ever-increasing number of employers review their fleet requirements.’
Crookes currently heads up an eight-strong sales team, but that will expand as Ogilvie Fleet looks to increase the number of company cars and vans on its books towards 20,000 units over the coming years.
Ogilvie Fleet sales and marketing director Nick Hardy said: ‘Ogilvie Fleet has award-winning IT systems and customer service support in place and allied to the desire and capability to expand we believe our product offering will prove attractive to all sizes of fleets across the public and private sectors.’
