Alphabet appoints head of fleet management
01 July 2011
Alphabet has appointed Martyn Gallop, previously operations director at Fleet Logistics, as head of fleet management. He has also worked as operations director at Hitachi Capital Vehicle Solutions and Client Services Director at Arval.
Gallop said: "The opportunity to join Alphabet, as it emerges as a leading UK and European leasing and fleet management provider, was not one to miss. Customers increasingly want to outsource non-core areas like fleet, and my role here will include developing our existing fleet and driver management services in line with the needs of the market."
The appointment follows last month's announcement of a new senior management team structure for Alphabet, which is now operationally independent in the UK while remaining part of BMW Group Financial Services.
Chief executive Richard Schooling said: "Martyn's knowledge, experience and abilities are widely known and respected in the industry. His appointment reflects the strategic importance of fleet and driver management and outsourcing in Alphabet's development plans."
