Nissan GB has appointed Csaba Vincze as fleet director as it targets “leadership in electrification” with the launch of its new Ariya EV crossover and fully electric Townstar compact van.
Vincze takes on the new role having previously been head of the MD office in the UK and a member of the Japanese brand’s management committee.
He has also held senior positions in Nissan’s Central and Eastern European region, leading its sales department and being product and fleet manager for LCVs.
Andrew Humberstone, managing director at Nissan GB, said: “I am delighted to welcome Csaba Vincze to his new role at NMGB where he will continue to strengthen our position as a leading player in the transformation of UK vehicle fleets.
“With so many fantastic, electrified new products due to be launched in the coming months, including cars and commercial vehicles, we can be confident that Nissan will remain a trusted partner to businesses looking to reduce their fleet carbon footprint.”
Nissan said in a statement that it had worked hard to establish itself as a global leader in electric vehicle technology in recent years and was entering an exciting new era with a refreshed LCV line-up and the upcoming arrival of the Ariya crossover and Townstar compact van.
The two new products will bolster strong registrations already seen among fleet customers for its e-NV200 EV van and LEAF hatchback.
It is now looking to its 43-strong business centre network - currently rolling out a corporate identity update - to further boost EV sales with the help of flexible finance arrangements provided via RCI Financial Services.
Vincze said: “This leadership in electrification, together with our rapidly growing LCV offering, make Nissan a perfect partner for today’s fleet needs and I look forward to making even more progress with our many valued business clients in the months and years ahead.’’
