Suzuki builds on fleet proposition

Suzuki has appointed Graeme Jenkins as head of fleet.

Graeme joins the brand at a very exciting time having just posted record UK sales in 2016 of over 38,000 units and with at least 14% of those attributed to fleet and corporate business.

Graeme was previously employed with Maserati as corporate sales manager, a position he held since 2013. Prior to that he gained 15 years industry experience working with Toyota GB in contract hire and leasing, business development and latterly in fleet sales and marketing.

Graeme said, ‘This is an exciting time to be joining Suzuki, with plans for significant product driven growth in the fleet market along with substantial investment, there is no doubt Suzuki are now serious about fleet.

‘We will now be raising awareness within the sector of a compelling range of relevant models including the recently launched IGNIS with mild hybrid application and facelifted S-Cross.’

Reporting into Graeme, Andrew Wale will continue to have responsibility for residual values, new model launches to the fleet sector as well SMR’s, Motability and the remarketing of ex-Suzuki GB vehicles to its 158 strong dealer network.
