Korean car maker Kia has appointed Andrew Sellars as its new head of fleet and remarketing.

Sellars will report to sales director Yaser Shabsogh. Commenting on the appointment Shabsogh said: "Andrew is the perfect individual for this role because he has such extensive experience of our dealer network. He has been with the Kia brand throughout the last five years and so has seen how our growth has been built on dramatically improving product quality and a closely focused retail strategy that is delivering sustainable and profitable growth for both the dealer network and the brand nationally."
