Leasing and fleet management firm Fleethire has promoted Nick Poole to the role of sales director.

Poole, who was one of the firm’s founding members of staff, moves up from the position of general sales manager.

“Nick is taking responsibility for sales and customer service at a pivotal time in the company’s history and has an enormous challenge ahead as we strive to grow market share and become a prominent vehicle services provider for the UK,” said Fleethire managing director Graham Hale.

Fleethire has also introduced a new asset finance division to “provide bespoke funding solutions through reputable industry partners”.
