Fleet mobility provider Alphabet has appointed Leanne Christmas to lead its UK executive team as head of compliance.

Christmas previously acted as interim head of compliance from July 2016, and prior to joining Alphabet worked at RSM, serving as associate director, leading the regulatory compliance and financial services team.

She also spent 8 years at Barclays, in a series of global internal audit risk, and governance roles, and as head of conduct risk in the retail banking operation.

Christmas said: “I’m very pleased to be part of the leadership team of a prestigious, respected, and progressive brand such as Alphabet.

“With my experience of the regulatory framework as well proven track record in internal audit, risk and governance, I’m confident that we can ensure the function here at Alphabet is viewed as an enabler, not a blocker for the business and meets our customers’ needs.”
