Hyundai has appointed a new fleet director to take charge of the brand's operations in the UK fleet and business sector.
Michael Stewart has more than 17 years of automotive and fleet experience working with firms including Nissan, Mazda and Vauxhall.
Hyundai says Stewart brings additional strategic and operational strengths to the Hyundai UK senior team, with particular capabilities in leasing, dealer fleet and Motability.
Stewart said: "I'm delighted to be joining Hyundai at such an exciting time for the brand.
"Hyundai is a company with an already strong product line-up which is perfectly suited for the changing fleet market and there is a great deal more to come.
"It is also highly-regarded in the UK fleet market not just for its products but also for the standard of the services it offers its fleet customers - and it has the awards to prove it!
"I am looking forward to further enhancing the brand's business offering and reputation in the sector."
Tony Whitehorn, president and CEO of Hyundai UK, said, "Michael Stewart's appointment is an important one for Hyundai as we work on growing our market share, building on the reputation we've earned from fleet operators large and small.
"2018 will see comprehensive updates to key vehicles, alongside all-new model introductions, so now is a crucial time to retain existing business customers and grow our influence further."
