With over 25 years’ experience in contract hire and vehicle management, Kerr was previously the director of asset finance at Lombard North Central Plc. He previously held a number of senior management roles within Lombard Vehicle Management, and even after the closure of the business, he was retained by Lombard to head up their asset finance division in South East England. He was also responsible for setting up Lombard Vehicle Management’s SME team.
In his new role at Volkswagen Group Leasing, part of Volkswagen Financial Services (UK) Limited, he will be particularly focusing on developing the firm’s 100+ fleet market and will also be helping to lead Volkswagen Group Leasing’s expansion into the international market.
Reporting into corporate solutions director Martin Ballard, he will be working closely with the front line sales people across the UK’s regions and within Volkswagen Group Leasing’s horizontal and vertical markets, including commercial vehicles and public sector.
Martin Ballard commented: ‘This is a real coup for Volkswagen Group Leasing to recruit a very successful and determined head of sales, who has extensive knowledge of the market. Nigel brings with him a wealth of experience that will support our drive to become the number one leasing company in the UK, as well as sustain our continued commitment to provide our customers with the best leasing and vehicle management offerings on the market.’
