Leaseplan UK has recruited James Hopkins, Mazda's European fleet operations director, to be its new head of remarketing and created new departments to handle procurement and supplier management plus customer experience. Hopkins, who supervised 50,000 new vehicles sales in Europe for Mazda, was previously head of fleet and remarketing for Mazda UK. Matt Cranny, Leaseplan's UK operations director, said Hopkins appointment was instrumental in maximising the firm's remarketing performance in a volatile climate.
Neil Dixon will manage the new procurement and supplier management department. His customer experience counterpart is Jo Miles.
