Renault completes enhancements to fleet team with new appointments
New recruits Simon Hubbard, Mark Waite and Simon Williams join as business development area managers while Chris Bunce becomes business sales area manager (SME).
The carmaker said the appointments will enable Renault and Dacia to drive forward plans for fleet sales covering new C-segment products and the LCV range.
The appointments follow the restructuring of the department to bring the Fleet Operations, Residual Value Management and Used Vehicles teams together under Mark Dickens, as the head of fleet operations and remarketing, to offer fleets an all-encompassing service.
The demonstrator fleet has also been increased by 57% and Business Hub support call centre personnel have been increased by 30%. A new telephone voice coaching system has also been introduced throughout the brand’s increasing number of Pro+ fleet dealerships.
Darren Payne, sales director, Group Renault UK, said: “These appointments and growth in our sales department come at a very exciting time for the rapidly growing Group Renault UK and for our customers, our fleet offering being stronger than ever with the first full-year of sales of the all-new Kadjar, the forthcoming all-new Mégane and, later in 2016, an all-new version of Scénic too.
“Our team prides itself on its expertise and our new members have all been recruited for their substantial experience, passion for the brand and understanding of businesses’ fleet requirements. With the right people, a superb product line-up, a much enlarged demonstrator fleet and even greater support facilities, we look forward to providing fleet customers with an unprecedented Renault experience.”
