Top management appointments at Kwik Fit Fleet as Peter Lambert retires
Kwik Fit has made changes in the senior management team for its GB Fleet operation following the decision of Peter Lambert to retire on 31 March.
Lambert has held the role of Kwik Fit GB fleet director for almost seven years and has spent more than 30 years working in the UK motor industry, including a variety of roles with Ford, Toyota and DaimlerChrysler.
He commented: “During my career I have been privileged to have worked for some outstanding companies. Over the years I have had some inspirational bosses who influenced the development of my own management style which includes, being well organised, always having a positive attitude and most important of all your integrity is priceless.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Kwik Fit and I am pleased to say that I have accomplished everything that I set out to achieve. Kwik Fit Fleet has an excellent team with the potential to achieve great things in the future.”
Lambert’s retirement sees the recruitment of Andy Fern as fleet sales director and the promotion of Simon Lucas to the newly created position of customer support director for Kwik Fit GB.
Fern, who joined Kwik Fit GB on 1 February following an 18-year career with Michelin, will assume his new role with overall responsibility for fleet sales on 1 April. Reporting directly to Kwik Fit GB managing director Kenji Murai, he brings a wealth of fleet industry knowledge, latterly as Michelin’s national fleet sales manager.
Meanwhile, Simon Lucas, currently Kwik Fit Fleet’s operations director, will expand his role while retaining responsibility for Kwik Fit Mobile, which numbers some 200 vehicles, and the management of the company’s Customer Support Centre in Tannochside, Scotland, serving both fleet and retail customers. He also reports directly to Kenji Murai.
