FleetCheck expands north

FleetCheck has appointed Richard Waiton to oversee the company’s new northern regional office.

He has been working with the fleet software company on a consultancy basis since 2015, specialising mainly in the commercial vehicle sector.

Richard’s involvement in the CV sector dates back more than three decades, as group transport manager for Polypipe PLC and transport operations manager for MSAS Global Logistics, as well as consultancy roles.

The new FleetCheck regional office has opened in Doncaster due to the company’s user base of larger CVs becoming increasingly focused in the north of England.

Richard said, ‘This is an exciting time to be involved with FleetCheck. The company is growing at an incredible pace, developing innovative new products and forging a range of partnerships with organisations important in the CV world, including FORS and the FTA.

‘The new northern office will allow us to respond quickly to the needs of customers in the region, especially those requiring commercial vehicle expertise and knowledge.’

Peter Golding, managing director, added, ‘Richard has made a valuable contribution to FleetCheck over the last few years and fully deserves his board position, bringing to the table a wealth of commercial vehicle and fleet compliance experience. Our vision for the company going forward is to provide a wider range of consultancy services and, as our leading CV expert, Richard will help drive this project forward.’
