Prestige Fleet Servicing makes new management appointments and expands network

Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire June 2015
Prestige Fleet Servicing (Prestige) has made two new management appointments and expanded its network of Service Centres by eight new outlets in the last four weeks.

There was no photo-finish in this race however, as Avery finished ahead of all other competitors to win a pair of hospitality tickets to an elite speedway event of his choice at a variety of locations in the UK.

The East Midlands-based provider of vehicle servicing, maintenance and repair work to leasing companies, fleet management providers, corporate fleets and aftermarket warranty companies, has appointed Tom Dawson and Steve Lawrence to the key roles of Network Development Managers, reporting to Commercial Director, Joe Bhamra.

At the same time, the company which is looking to expand its network of independent fleet Service Centres by 30% by the year end, has added new centres in West London, Liverpool, Nottingham, Derby, Coventry, Waltham Abbey, Carlisle and Sheffield during May, specialising in both cars and light commercial vehicles.

Bhamra commented: "We are delighted Tom and Steve have accepted these roles which strengthen our support to our Service Centres which have grown by eight new outlets in just the last four weeks."

Tom Dawson joined Prestige in December 2013 and has served in a number of different areas of the business, including warranty, major and small fleet technical teams. In his new role, Dawson will be tasked with the continued development of the Prestige network.

He has been joined by highly experienced motor industry professional, Steve Lawrence, who previously enjoyed a career spanning 32 years with the AA.

In his time with the motoring organisation, Lawrence performed a number of different roles, starting as a mechanic before eventually managing the AA's network of 32 workshops. He also worked in a business development role, as well as managing a number of major fleet accounts and manufacturer relationships.

Lawrence holds a Certificate of Professional Conduct for Road Haulage, is a member of the Institute of Motor industry and a member of the Institute of Car Fleet Management.

"Both appointments will be key in helping us achieve our growth and service objectives for our network during 2015 and beyond" added Joe Bhamra,

With the latest additions to the Prestige network, the company now has 238 independent outlets providing low-cost, added-value servicing to fleet operators, including some of the UK's largest leasing companies.

However, the business is looking to recruit a further 60 fleet Service Centres to complete its national coverage and meet increased customer demand, following organic growth and a number of new business wins in recent months.

Prestige, which has been operating in the fleet servicing arena since 2007, offers a number of operational benefits to Service Centre partners within its network.

These include beneficial payment terms, guaranteed throughput of fleet servicing business, national parts prices, the latest technology platforms and its added value programme, which includes a national oil agreement, discounted insurance deals, workwear and internet coverage.

Each independent centre added to the network is physically inspected prior to appointment to ensure that it meets a number of quality standards, and then on an annual basis to ensure that the standards stipulated continue to be met.
