Fleet manager CLM has appointed Andy Short as commercial director, with responsibility for client services and supplier relationships with vehicle lessors and manufacturers.
Short has over 20 years’ experience in the UK fleet and automotive sectors, and this role will see him lead the 13-strong client services team.
He said: “In my new role, I shall be looking after all business development activities for existing customers and one of my initial priorities is to explore wider fleet service possibilities with existing customers in order to deliver greater value to them.”
CLM Fleet Management was acquired by the Maxxia Group in 2013, and manages more than 14,000 vehicles. Short said being part of a larger group brought additional benefits for CLM’s fleet customers.
Short added: “We are able to provide a wider range of innovative fleet solutions as a result, especially around vehicle finance where there is a broader set of options and funding sources available.”
CLM Fleet Management managing director, John Kelly, said: “We are delighted to welcome Andy to the senior management team at CLM and expect his wealth of experience will help us further grow and develop the business.”
