Nissan Motor (GB) has promoted Barry Beeston to the position of fleet sales director, replacing Andy Woodhall who recently left the company.
Beeston joined Nissan in 1991 as technical support controller and held several roles within the company before becoming national fleet operations manager in 2007.
Beeston said: “I am delighted to be taking over Nissan’s fleet operation.
"With increased brand consideration and substantial market share growth, coupled with a number of innovative products in the pipeline designed to appeal to the company car driver, Nissan is now even more relevant than ever in the fleet sector."
Beeston starts with immediate effect and will report to James Douglas, corporate sales director.
Woodhall had been fleet director since January 2011, but had worked at Nissan since 2001 when he joined the carmaker from dealer group Reg Vardy.
