Nissan GB names new fleet director

Nissan GB has announced that Marco Capozzoli has been named its new fleet director as it continues to accelerate its plans for a fully electrified range of vehicles tailored to business users.

Capozzoli, who has worked at Nissan for nearly six years and has a broad range of leasing, finance and vehicle rental experience, will take on the new position with immediate effect.

He succeeds Csaba Vincze, who has taken on the role of director of network development and customer quality.

Capozzoli said: “I’d like to continue the mid-term fleet strategy with special focus on the dealer network and maximise our performance through sales channel optimisation. With a newly launched range of fantastic, electrified vehicles, including the fully electric Ariya and Townstar compact van, these are exciting times for Nissan GB.

“With our 10-year heritage in electric vehicles, we have valuable experience to help businesses that are looking to cut their carbon footprint and transition to a zero-emission fleet. I look forward to this exciting challenge and continuing to help our customers embrace the electrified era.”

Michael Auliar, sales director at Nissan GB, said: “Fleet will be a key factor in our future success, so I’m delighted to see Marco taking on this exciting new opportunity. He will continue to evolve our role as a trusted adviser to the UK’s vehicle fleets, both large and small, and ensure business can access advice that will facilitate their transition to a lower carbon future.”
