Europcar names new commercial director

Europcar Mobility Group has appointed former GreenFlag commercial director Mark Newberry as commercial director for the UK and Ireland.

Reporting to managing director Ron Santiago, he will have overall responsibility for sales and marketing of Europcar services in both consumer and business markets.

He said: “The fast-changing economic and environmental landscape has put Europcar Mobility Group front and centre as a ‘go to’ provider, keeping individuals and businesses moving in a sustainable and cost-effective way. And it was this increasingly pivotal role that appealed to me in accepting the position of commercial director.

“I am looking forward to understanding how Europcar Mobility Group helps private motorists – whether for work or leisure – as well as working with the multitude of businesses that need us to help them manage their mobility needs.”

Santiago added: “Mark’s extensive experience in the vehicle insurance and assistance marketplace has given him a very clear picture of the evolving mobility marketplace. I am very confident that, working with our well established sales and marketing teams, he will bring this experience to bear in helping our customers as they seek solutions to stay on the road, safely, sustainably and cost-effectively.”
