Turner brings more than 35 years of experience within the commercial vehicle industry, including 27 at MAN Truck & Bus UK where he held a number of senior positions, predominately within its aftersales division.
His appointment comes on the back of recent investment by the company, including its appointment of five new regional business development managers earlier this summer, and Des Evans as non-executive director at the start of 2017.
Managing director Mick Ledden said: “We’re very excited to have someone of Andy’s experience and reputation joining the business in this senior leadership role. His extensive specialist knowledge of repair and maintenance processes and fleet management systems will be significant in further establishing Axis as a world class provider of fleet management services.
“This new appointment is part of our on-going investment to deliver on our strategic vision and grow our business by providing customer-focused, value-added solutions within the UK fleet hire and management sector.”
