Paul Parkinson is to take over as chairman of the BVRLA's Leasing Broker Committee.
Parkinson, founder and CEO of Synergy Car Leasing, will take up the role this month after a year as vice-chairman, and having been a member of the committee since 2015.
The committee's remit is to drive up industry standards by sharing best practice, and its recent successes are said to include the roll out of online training programmes and its broker audits, focusing on financial compliance.
Parkinson said: "I'm delighted to take on the role of chairman of the Leasing Broker Committee. I will work to ensure that through our shared voice and learning, as well as sector policy developments, our broker members continue to benefit from the work of the committee and the wider BVRLA.
"I am committed to further developing member engagement, as this sector is very well positioned to capitalise on the growth in online sales based on the flexibility of choice that comes with leasing and the high levels of professionalism shown in the sector."
Outgoing committee chairman Alan Carreras said: "It has been a pleasure to work so closely with Paul over the last year, and I know that Paul will champion the interests of BVRLA members, as well as the customer, in his role as chairman, and will continue to drive the sector forward."
Parkinson added: "I would like to thank Alan, on behalf of the committee, for his work and support over the last two extremely challenging years."
