Zenith to focus on employee benefits portfolio with appointment of Andrew Kirby
Kirby has over 16 years of experience in the fleet industry in a variety of roles spanning sales, employee schemes, strategic development and change management. His most recent position was as regional, public sector and SME sales director for Lex Autolease.
Zenith has been providing employee car ownership (ECO) schemes for many years and launched its salary sacrifice car scheme product in 2008. The firm says ECO has seen a resurgence in popularity recently, particularly in the form of blended funding solutions. Salary sacrifice car schemes continue to be a rapidly growing area for Zenith in its target market of mid to large corporates. The company has invested heavily in its online systems and communication strategies to maximise the value of all employee vehicle benefits to both corporates and their workforce.
Andrew Kirby commented: ‘Zenith’s strong industry representation, along with their focus on growth and development make it a very exciting organisation to join. I am looking forward to developing its employee benefits portfolio and further enhancing the company’s existing offering for both current and new customers.’
Tim Buchan, chief executive for Zenith comments: ‘Zenith is firmly committed to investing in “all employee” vehicle benefits. We seek to provide a company vehicle to every employee within an organisation and Andrew’s appointment forms one part of our total mobility strategy.’
