Vehicle leasing and fleet management company Activa Contracts has announced new managerial appointments to its sales team.
Sally Lewis has been promoted from south west area manager to the newly created position of national sales manager, Peter Renton has been promoted from East Midlands and East Anglia area manager to head up a new sales resource department, and Steve Callaghan, a new recruit from Vauxhall, has been named as area manager for the Midlands.
Lewis and Renton will report to sales and marketing director Lisa Temperton, who is also in the process of recruiting two further area managers.
She said: "Activa Contracts is expanding due to delivering industry-leading fleet products and solutions to customers, backed up by a consultancy approach and a willingness to ensure whatever clients require they receive to improve the efficiency and operational effectiveness of their transport operation.
"That strategy, and a willingness to deliver bespoke and not 'off-the-shelf' products, is proving successful in securing new fleet contracts and thus we require greater resource to manage the business wins and deliver first-class in-life vehicle management."
Renton's new department will be responsible for customer contract implementation and management, online management system set-up and fleet management information.
Temperton said: "The management of customers' fleets is ever-more bespoke and that means increased specialism.
"Activa Contracts has therefore adapted its internal structure to better satisfy the demands of customers and build on our first-class customer service levels."
On the subject of the new appointments, Temperton said: "Sally is hard-working, diligent and consistent in her performance with a focus on attention to detail, which are all attributes that are essential in delivering top-class fleet account management and customer service.
"Peter has proved himself to be an excellent employee with the drive, desire and determination to succeed that we require.
"We are delighted that someone with the industry knowledge and experience of Steve has joined the Activa Contracts sales team."
