ANDY Houston has set up his own brokerage, called Total Vehicle Leasing.
The former Leasing Options Sales Director has based his new operation in Knutsford, Cheshire, south west of Manchester.
Andy Houston explained: “I had a great time at Leasing Options, but I thought it was really time I did something myself. Setting up my own business was the next step.
“I’ve had a business mentor for 15 years, and I was explaining to him my aspirations – so he said: ‘why not? Let’s do it!’ So here we are!”
The business mentor, IT entrepreneur Kevin Devine, is a shareholder in Total Vehicle Leasing.
Andy told us that he had been busy recruiting: “I want Total Vehicle Leasing to not only be a great company for our customers, but a great place to work too.”
Total Vehicle Leasing is planning to sell 500 units in its start up year, following the official launch in mid-April once the website goes live.
“We’re not planning to be a lifestyle company,” confirmed Andy. “We are here to succeed and grow.”
As part of that success plan, Total Vehicle Leasing has joined the Leasing Broker Federation. Ifyou want to meet Andy and his co-director, they will be at the Manchester Broker Dinner at Alderley Edge.
