Bradford-based dealer group JCT600 has appointed Frank Turner as national broker and corporate accounts manager for its growing fleet operation.
Turner joins from the broker division of Lease Options NI, where he was sales director. He has more than 26 years’ experience in the motor industry and previously worked for Lex Vehicle Leasing, Custom Fleet and Ogilvie Fleet. More recently, he worked as a director in trade operations for SG Fleet and as group fleet sales manager for Parks Motor Group/Thistle Vehicle Leasing.
Turner will be responsible for managing and growing broker and fleet sales. Last year, JCT600 amalgamated its various volume fleet teams into one division. Neill Richards, fleet sales director of JCT600, said: “Over the last 18 months, we have put in place a team of six top quality fleet managers with a vast amount of valuable fleet experience who are responsible for their own departments and bottom-line profit as well as being passionate brand ambassadors.
“Frank is a welcome and extremely experienced new member of the team whose recruitment has completed our transition into a single, national fleet division, putting us in a strong position for future growth.”
Turner said: “I share JCT600’s values; it is a dynamic and success-focused company, which is committed to delivering best-in-class customer service and has retained its family values. There is a real passion to drive the business forward and the vision to develop into new areas of work as well as benefiting from having industry-leading facilities.”
The other members of JCT600’s fleet team are Steve Wilman for Volkswagen and Audi; Jayne McFadzen for volume brands; Tony Dent for Mercedes Benz; Paul Smith for BMW; Lyndsey Egginton, senior key account manager for Volkswagen/Audi fleet hub; and Neill Richards, group fleet sales director with fleet responsibility for Porsche, Bentley and Maserati.
