Matt Belsom has joined the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicle fleet team as area manager for London and the South East.
Belsom reports directly to the brand’s national fleet manager, Tracey Perry, and takes on responsibility for securing new fleet accounts and continuing to build upon Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles’ work within the South East region.
He joins the brand from worldwide contact lens manufacturer CooperVision, where he spent nearly three years as a senior business development manager.
Commenting on Belsom’s appointment, Tracey Perry said: “Coming from outside the automotive industry, he brings a fresh perspective and excellent customer relationship skills. It’s a really exciting time for the brand, with the UK launch of the new Crafter fast approaching in April 2017. This new model is a game-changer in our brand offering, so it’s great to have the team at full strength.”
