Tusker appoints Sinclair as chief operating officer
Reporting to chief executive David Hosking, Sinclair, joins the company after 12 years’ experience with multi-marque leasing company Alphabet, which is owned by BMW Group.
Sinclair was formerly director of Alphabet GB, a position he held from October 2007 to early 2011, and for the last 15 months was director of international operations at Alphabet International, which has a global fleet of 480,000 vehicles, based in Munich.
Commenting on his appointment, Mark Sinclair said: ‘I’m joining Tusker at a very exciting stage in its development and at a time when I can add real value to the business as it moves forward. Tusker is currently small but growing rapidly and is in a really interesting and rapidly developing market segment.
‘I’m a strong believer in salary sacrifice as a product that is opening up and growing in the UK. Tusker is very well positioned in the market to leverage that and to capitalise on the growth opportunities available.
‘Based on the current order take, the expectation at Tusker is that we will triple the size of the portfolio over the next three years. I am very confident that Tusker can go on to develop into a strong, solid mid-tier sized player in the fleet market and the leading specialist in salary sacrifice,’ he concluded.
Commenting on the new appointment, Tusker chief executive David Hosking (Inset, Right), said: ‘Mark brings a wealth of premier division experience to Tusker at a time when we are making great strides towards our ambitious growth plans, and we are delighted to welcome him to the business.
‘We confidently expect Mark to help further refine and develop our operations to ensure that we continue to provide the first class customer experience and innovative products and solutions for which we have become so well known for,’ he added.
