Sir Trevor Chinn joins Tusker as non-exec chairman
Sir Trevor has extensive experience in the motor industry, beginning with Lex Service plc where he became chairman in 1973 until his retirement in 2003, when the company earned profits of £85m.
One of his most notable achievements at Lex was the acquisition of the RAC in 1999 for £425m, which completely changed the nature of the company and led to its change of name in 2001 to RAC plc. In 1989 he initiated the Lex Report on Motoring, now the RAC Report on Motoring.
Sir Trevor continues to hold a number of leading positions. He is senior adviser to private equity firm, CVC Capital Partners; chairman of car club Streetcar; chairman of the newly launched TescoCars and chairman of ITIS, a traffic information company. He was chair of the Government’s Motorists’ Forum from 2000-2010.
Sir Trevor, who has made a personal investment in Tusker, said: 'This is an exciting time as Tusker are currently experiencing plenty of growth momentum. I strongly believe that they are at the forefront of new technological and service development within the fleet and salary sacrifice car markets and I look forward to helping them further develop their growth strategy.'
Tusker managing director David Hosking said: 'We are delighted that Sir Trevor Chinn has joined our board as non-executive chairman, bringing an unparalleled wealth of knowledge and experience of both the UK fleet sector and the motor industry, as we take the company forward.'For more of the latest industry news, click here.
