Lex Autolease has appointed a head of fleet consultancy.
Ashley Barnett has been promoted to the role from the position of principal consultant. He replaces Lauren Pamma, who has moved to the role of head of commercial management within Black Horse.
Barnett has 25 years’ experience in accountancy, with a focus on vehicle funding, company car policy and salary sacrifice schemes. He has spent 19 years in the Lloyds TSB group, and previously worked within the Co-operative group.
Barnett said: “This is a pivotal time for vehicle leasing. The shifting legislative and technological environment means there’s a greater need than ever before for expert and insightful fleet management advice.
“As the UK’s leading fleet consultancy team, we are committed to helping organisations successfully navigate this changing landscape, and ensuring they get the right vehicle, for the right job.”
Managing director of Lex Autolease, Tim Porter, said: “Our fleet consultancy team, under Ashley’s leadership, will continue to provide important support and guidance to our customers in a changing leasing market.
“With over 380,000 vehicles on fleet, we have access to a significant amount of operational data, and leveraging this data to translate it into actionable insights for fleets is something we plan to focus on over the coming year.”
