Pendragon Vehicle Management has changed its leadership structure.
The sales team is now led by new head of sales, Jon Hilton, who moves into the role after a period as head of new business.
Hilton joined the company in 2010 as a graduate business development executive, before becoming customer relationship manager.
Chris Leslie becomes head of new business. He joined the company in 2013 as business capture manager.
Leslie has 20 years’ experience in the automotive industry, beginning his career as a service advisor for Volkswagen and Porsche before being promoted to sales manager for BMW and later general sales manager for the car dealer Gilder Group in Sheffield.
Following this, Leslie owned and managed his own automotive consultancy business and worked with Inchcape as a consultant for Mercedes-Benz Retail before moving to Pendragon Vehicle Management.
A new addition to the team is Chris Mangan, head of rental.
Mangan's eight years of experience within the rental industry will help expand the daily rental and flexi hire area of the business. He joins from flexi rental operation, AMT Vehicle Rental, with previous roles within major daily rental business, Europcar, and a number of daily rental brokers.
Neal Francis, divisional managing director, said: “The new leadership structure forms the basis of our aspirations to strengthen and develop, whilst helping to enhance our service provision to new and existing customers by offering a complete and rounded variety of products via dedicated teams.”
