Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has named Claire English as its new head of fleet.

Claire English assumes the role of head of fleet at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles from the end of June

English replaces David Hanna, who recently took over as head of service and parts for the brand, and has been with the Volkswagen Group since she joined the company on the graduate scheme in 2003.

Her most recent role was as national contract hire and leasing manager within the Volkswagen Passenger Cars fleet team, playing a key role in the ongoing development of the brand’s fleet strategy.

In her new role – effective from end of June – English will be responsible for all fleet sales, through the five area sales managers and key and central account managers, rental and leasing managers and the local business development managers within the brand’s 72 Van Centres.
