JONATHAN Snelson has been appointed Group Fleet Director at Vertu Motors.
Jonathan joined Vertu, the Gateshead-based motor retailer, two years ago as Fleet Director for VAG, Nissan and Renault.
With more than 22 years’ experience in the motor retail industry, Jonathan has held senior roles within L and L Automotive, and Sytner.
As Group Fleet Director, Jonathan’s objective will be to establish key relationships and act as the central point of contact for fleet customers for sales and aftersales.
Vertu says it wants to expand its large-scale fleet operations across its brand portfolio.
Jonathan said: “Vertu is a company which is constantly evolving in every aspect of the business and it creates opportunities, rather than waiting for a break. This is something I will continue to demonstrate and utilise in my new role.
“I enjoy building strong, effective relationships and I am eager to continue that and support the future of Vertu’s fleet division in my new role.”
David Crane, Chief Operations Officer, Vertu Motors added: “Jonathan has invaluable industry experience and has established an excellent track record since joining us in 2016. I have no doubt that he will excel in his new position.”
Jonathan lives in Northampton with his family and is a part-time rugby coach for his son’s team. He also enjoys clay pigeon shooting, is a qualified open water diver and the whole family are season ticket holders at Northampton Saints.
