Mercedes-Benz has appointed a new head of fleet for its UK car division.

Tom Brennan, who has taken on the role, started his career in financial services before moving into the automotive industry and subsequently the world of fleet. 

Most recently, he worked as head of UK fleet sales for Audi.

Brennan fills the role vacated by Rob East, who left the company last year to join BMW as general manager for corporate sales.

Mercedes-Benz sales director Rachael Thompson said: “Fleet sales have been crucial to Mercedes-Benz’s continued growth in the UK.

“Tom brings with him great experience in the premium automotive sector and we are confident that he will continue this team’s great success.”
