Volvo has restructured its national leasing team.
Jonny Miller (pictured) has been promoted to the newly created role of national leasing and residual value manager from his previous position as southern regional leasing manager.
He will now oversees the company's relationship with the leasing industry, as well as managing the residual values of new Volvo product launches.
John Isaac has been appointed as the new southern regional leasing manager after stints working for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and Dekra, and Elaine Johnstone continues in her current role as northern regional leasing manager. Both will report to Miller.
Miller has been with Volvo for almost two years, having previously spent four years with Glass's Information Services looking after manufacturer relationships.
Prior to that he was group remarketing manager for used cars at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles.
Miller said: "As a premium brand, a focus on residual values is essential if Volvo is to continue to grow its presence in the leasing sector.
"Having the dedicated and focused leasing team responsible for monitoring and improving residual values and whole life costs maintains our competitive edge within the leasing sector.
"The focus on residual value maintenance and improvement, along with our deep understanding of the influencing factors and drivers, will ensure our product offering is right for the business user."
Volvo's UK head of business sales Steve Beattie said: "Strong relationships and a thorough understanding of the leasing sector are critical for Volvo to continue its momentum in the fleet sector.
"Jonny understands the dynamics of residual value setting, including the positive and negative influences in both the short and long term.
"His appointment puts us in a great position to ensure we do the correct things to improve our position."
