Volkswagen UK has appointed Nick O’Neill as its new head of fleet and he will take up the role on February 1.
He replaces Michael O’Shea who moved to the role of group head of eCommerce at the end of last year.
O’Neill will report into head of sales operations, Patrick McGillycuddy and will oversee the VW’s fleet team.
O’Neill started at Volkswagen Financial Services in 2002. There he undertook various roles before transferring to Volkswagen Group UK in 2013.
After two years in group parts operations, he moved to Škoda where he has spent the last four years working across both the used cars and sales operations teams.
As head of fleet, O’Neill will be responsible for leadership of the fleet team and fleet function within the brand; developing and implementing strategies to deliver growth.
O’Neill said: “The fleet sector is vital for any major automotive brand in the UK, and for me, the prospect of providing Volkswagen’s renowned products and services to our fleet customers is hugely exciting. I look forward to working with the factory, the board of management, the Network and, of course, our customers.”
