Synergy Car Leasing founder and CEO Paul Parkinson has been appointed as vice-chairman of the BVRLA's leasing broker committee.
Parkinson has been a member of the committee, which aims to improve industry standards particularly around financial compliance, since 2015.
The committee's initiatives have included the introduction and roll-out of online training modules for all brokers to ensure FCA standards are met.
Parkinson said: "I'm delighted and honoured to take up this role. Members of the BVRLA benefit from their collective voice, government lobbying and sector policy developments that this respected trade association brings together.
"We've got some extremely motivated members pooling resources. In my tenure I'm committed to further enhancing engagement with members, as this sector is well positioned to capitalise on the growth of big-ticket item online transactions.
"There are challenges ahead with Brexit and Covid-19 but I believe the BVRLA's members can navigate the bumpy road ahead more smoothly with the backing of our association, as we work together to support and protect the leasing broker sectors and its customers."
BVRLA leasing broker committee chairman Alan Carreras said: "Paul has been a valued contributor to the leasing broker committee for some years and is passionate about protecting the interests of the BVRLA broker community and its customers. I look forward to working alongside him in his new role as vice-chair."
