Marshall Leasing has named Greg McDowell as its new managing director.
McDowell, whose appointment follows the retirement of Peter Cakebread last month, was most recently head of strategy at Northridge Finance and Marshall Leasing, and led the integration of Marshall Leasing with Bank of Ireland UK, following its acquisition by the bank in 2017.
He previously held a number of senior roles with Bank of Ireland, within its corporate banking and strategy divisions.
McDowell said: "I am delighted to have been appointed Managing Director of Marshall Leasing and look forward to working with the team in continuing to provide a flexible and personalised customer service as we grow our fleet over the coming years.
"Marshall Leasing has a proud tradition of working in partnership with our customers, and this has been more important than ever over the last 12 months.
"Furthermore, Marshall Leasing enjoys a strong and supportive relationship with both the BVRLA and recently formed AFP. Given the fast-changing and increasingly complex nature of the motor industry, having proactive industry representative bodies is more important than ever and we will continue to play an active role in both of these organisations."
James McGee, managing director of Marshall Leasing's parent company Northridge Finance, said: "I would like to wish Greg every success in his new role and I know he will provide strong strategic and customer focus for Marshall Leasing as the business enters the next phase of its development.
"Greg brings a wealth of commercial experience to the role which will be key as we look to generate strong fleet growth."
