Former boss of leasing firm ALD, Keith Allen, has joined ARI Fleet UK as managing director.

Allen will work alongside acting managing director Mark Bryan, before the latter resumes his role as vice president of European integration.

Formerly known as FSG, ARI adopted its parent firm’s name after it was taken over a year ago.

Allen, who was managing director at ALD for 13 years before the move, said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed my career in the fleet industry to date.

“My time at ALD was rewarding both personally and professionally. The opportunity to join ARI, however, was one that I could not pass-up.

“ARI’s focus on the client, industry leading technology, and approach to transparent cost management is something I believe will be readily embraced by companies operating vehicles in the UK.

“I am excited to join the ARI team and to help the continuing development of this global organization.”
