Volkswagen Financial Services UK (VWFS) has appointed ex-Glass’s managing director Ian Tilbrook as its interim fleet director.

Tilbrook’s previous roles also include managing director of ING Car Lease, integration director at Alphabet and international sales director and UK sales director at Leaseplan.

His appointment comes as VWFS embarks upon a programme to reshape and evolve its fleet business, improving its multi-marque offering.

Graham Wheeler, managing director of VWFS, said: “Our plans for the future of fleet within VWFS are ambitious.

“Our collective goal is to be the best in the industry and the assistance of Ian, with his impressive background and track record, will be a major asset in driving our business forward.”

VWFS Fleet has a total risk fleet heading towards 100,000 vehicles, which puts it at sixth place in the BC50.

Tilbrook stepped down as Glass’s managing director in October last year and was replaced by Ed Hummel.
