Leasing company Alphabet has appointed Richard Chadwick as head of its broker division Alphabet Partner.
Chadwick first joined Alphabet Partner in 2014, the year in which it was established to provide SMEs and sole traders with access to Alphabet's funding, fleet management and mobility products via a select group of broker partnerships.
Chadwick has worked in a number of roles since joining the business, including as national development manager.
He said: "It feels great to be able to lead the Alphabet Partner division into the next phase of our success.
"Having been part of it since the launch back in 2014, I've seen Alphabet Partner grow from being an idea on a piece of paper to becoming an established business channel.
"It's been an incredible journey which has been the result of a real team effort between both the team at Alphabet and the select group of brokers around the country who share our ethos and values."
Alphabet general manager for indirect sales Gavin Davies said: "I'm delighted to be able to appoint Richard to the role of head of Alphabet Partner and it's one that he's richly deserved.
"I'm sure that no one who has had dealings with Richard over the past five years with Alphabet Partner will be surprised at the appointment, but we took our time and did the due diligence to search the market in the UK and further afield to find the best candidate for this important position.
"After undertaking our search we were convinced more than ever that Richard had absolutely the right skills, experience and mindset to take Alphabet Partner forward into its next chapter."
