Hyundai UK has appointed Michael Stewart as fleet director.
Stewart, who replaced Guy Pigounakis, comes from a 17-year career across brands such as Mazda, Nissan and Vauxhall.
His focus has been on leasing, dealer fleet and the Motability scheme for disabled people.
Stewart said: “I’m delighted to be joining Hyundai Motor UK at such an exciting time for the brand. Hyundai is a company with an already strong product line-up which is perfectly suited for the changing fleet market and there is a great deal more to come.
“It is also highly-regarded in the UK fleet market not just for its products but also for the standard of the services it offers its fleet customers. I am looking forward to further enhancing the brand’s business offering and reputation in the sector.”
Tony Whitehorn, president and chief executive officer for Hyundai Motor UK, said: “Michael Stewart’s appointment is an important one for Hyundai UK as we work on growing our market share, building on the reputation we’ve earned from fleet operators large and small.
“2018 will see comprehensive updates to key vehicles, alongside all-new model introductions, so now is a crucial time to retain existing business customers and grow our influence further.”
