Gofor announces leadership reshuffle

Edinburgh fleet management specialist Gofor has appointed Iain Bennett as its new managing director.

He is taking over from company founder Graham Lesslie, who moves to a new chief executive role.

Lesslie will maintain responsibility for the ongoing success of the company while Bennett will lead the running of the day-to-day business operations.

Lesslie said: “Iain’s appointment is incredibly exciting and sets Gofor up for the next stage in our growth. Iain struck me as a real people-first leader who recognises the importance of delivering excellent customer experiences, which aligns with our Gofor proactive values and culture.

“I’m pleased to be able to bring in someone of his calibre who can give us a fresh perspective on achieving our strategic aims and I’m excited to see the contribution he can make to our team and our customers.”

Bennett said: “It’s an exciting time to join Gofor, and it’s come at the perfect stage of my career. I want to thank Graham for trusting me with the operational responsibilities which will allow him to transition to a more visionary and strategic role within the business. I look forward to supporting him, our customers and the whole Gofor team, in this next phase of our growth.”
