The British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association has appointed Matt Dyer as its new chairman.

Dyer, currently managing director of leasing giant Leaseplan, joined the BVRLA's management committee in 2014 and was named as the vice-chairman last May.

He takes over from previous chairman, Simon Olliphant, who will serve as the vice-chairman.

Dyer has promised to help the BVRLA's members "navigate the dynamic mobility landscape" and said the fleet body "will be at the heart of the discussion of the big issues of the day", including air quality, emissions and connected data.

"As the new chairman of the BVRLA, it is an honour to be in a position to drive positive change within the industry I have been associated with for more than 20 years. The BVRLA has been dealing with changes in the industry already with thoughtful and innovative ways and I will endeavour to help contribute to the purpose and vision of this group," he said.

Gerry Keaney, chief executive of the BVRLA, welcomed Dyer's appointment: "I'm pleased that Matt is stepping up as chairman of the association. His enthusiasm and experience will greatly benefit the BVRLA as we celebrate our 50th anniversary."
Elsewhere, Wessex Fleet's Spencer Blake has replaced Fleetdrive's Mike Potter as chair of the body's Leasing Broker Committee.
