Northgate Vehicle Hire, market leader in flexible vehicle hire and complete fleet management solutions, has appointed Neil Burroughs as Head of Regional Sales for the UK and Ireland as part of a business growth strategy for 2013.

Previously working as Head of Sales for independent financial services group, Tenet, Neil has a wealth of experience in driving growth for businesses. Neil also has considerable knowledge in fine-tuning corporate propositions and acquisitions, following his work as a consultant for leading international companies such as Zurich and Oaktree Capital.

As Head of Regional Sales, Neil will be responsible for driving growth and profit across Northgate’s ten UK and Ireland based regions, in addition to fine-tuning the company’s flexible fleet solutions offering to ensure the proposition has added value and maintains a customer focus.

Neil commented on his new role:
"Northgate’s offering is unique; not only do we offer complete fleet management solutions for businesses, but flexible vehicle hire too. It is this exclusive proposition that, as Head of Regional Sales, I am keen to further develop in order to drive business growth moving forward."

Neil continued: "I hope to achieve this by working closely with the new management team and company board to emphasise the existing focus on the customer and also by directing an internal effort on developing the skill set of our employees to ensure Northgate is delivering an excellent service across the board."
