COMMERCIAL vehicle provider Dawsonrentals | vans has increased its customer base as a new recruit wins an 80-van three-year contract with maintenance, repairs, and refurbishment company Meddo CN Ltd.
The new deal, which will see Dawsonrentals lease up to 80 vehicles to Meddo, has become the largest for the Doncaster branch, taking its van count up to 700 – a 15% year-on-year increase.
The employee responsible for securing the deal is Ellie Wade, who joined the company in March as part of Dawsonrentals | vans’ new Club 120, an initiative set up to hire talented sales executives in the early stages of their careers.
As part of Club 120, Ellie has a goal of reaching 120 long-term van rentals – something she is now well on her way to accomplishing.
Dawsonrentals | vans will be delivering the vehicles, which have been liveried in Meddo corporate colours, to the Lincoln, Rotherham and Warrington Meddo offices.
Jim Ward, managing director of Meddo, commented “I am delighted to be working in partnership with Dawsonrentals | vans, their honest approach and commitment to service made them an easy choice to work with.”
Gareth Jones, managing director at Dawsonrentals | vans, added: “This deal is a very exciting one for the company as it offers a fantastic boost for the Doncaster branch, which is currently seeing impressive levels of growth, and there is still potential for Meddo to expand its fleet further.
“It is also pleasing to see Ellie’s achievement, as she is the first recruit of Club 120. Her success to date makes for a very exciting time as we hire more new talent via the scheme.”
In addition to the target of achieving 120 long-term van rentals, members of Club 120 also gain vital skills during a two-week training programme and enjoy a full benefits package comprising of a good basic salary, first-class commission structure, quality company car and a pension.
Dawsonrentals | vans is currently taking applications for Club 120 in its Reading, Milton Keynes, Doncaster, Skelmersdale and Newcastle branches via LinkedIn and Reed.co.uk.
